What you need to know before your trail
This is a story about people from all walks of life and all ages, cultures and tastes coming together on one of the most famous trains in the world.
As the story starts, we meet those about to board the train – Imogen is on a mission to recover a painting from her grandmother’s friend but she will learn something very surprising as she finds out more than she bargained for.
Riley is on the train with a special lady and he’s about to pop the question but will it turn out the way that he plans? Archie and Emmie have been set up on a date and Stephanie and Simon are in the early stages of their relationship.
Before boarding –
A frisson of excitement in the throngs of people waiting to board, friends waiting to wave them off..
A mix of people from all walks of life, every kind of relationship on board from singletons to married couples, people of all ages….all on the one train and the one adventure of their lives.
The Carriages are empty, but for the ghosts of passengers walking up and down the corridors, their fingertips gliding along the marquetry, their scent mingling in the stillness in the air..
Who are these ghosts? Don’t you wonder who they were and why they were on the train? Well, we’re about to meet the ones lucky enough to be coming aboard on this most romantic journey of all!
Enjoy breathtaking scenery as the legendary train takes you on the journey of a lifetime…
Coming out of the Santa Lucia train station and into the bright sunlight of Venice was rather like stepping thought the wardrobe and into Narnia, only with water, not snow.
As the characters develop so too does the scenery as we whizz past some of the most sunning scenery you could imagine. Not to mention the air of mystery, posh glamour and just the thrill of being on the train itself. It’s as if Veronica Henry herself is sat in the carriage watching over all her characters as if in a vintage movie.
By the time they reach their destination, what kind of journey have they had and where do each of them go from here?
The actual destinations of the Orient Express:
London – Paris – Brussels – Budapest – Prague – Venice
It’s amazing who you meet on a train and what can happen when the world outside you whizzes past whilst life on the train changes you forever..
