Enter the elegant and mysterious world of the Orient Express...
It's a plum assignment for photojournalist Joanne James, a ride on the Orient-Express with a stop in Venice for five days at the exclusive Cipriani Hotel -- all expenses paid.
Yet all is not well. Joanna is tired and filled with self-doubt. The trip starts out more as an inconvenience than an exciting adventure -- especially when a stop in London renews her friendship with two very different men, two way different lovers who both want a commitment she is not ready to give.
But then she boards the lush, luxurious train and enters its romantic world, where strangers become friends, where confidences are shared, where hearts are broken, and where love is lost...and found.
