ENCHANTED APRIL Elizabeth von Arnim

by: Elizabeth Von Arnim

A discreet advertisement in The Times, addressed to 'Those who Appreciate Wisteria and Sunshine...' is the impetus for a revelatory month for four very different women. High above a bay on the Italian Riviera stands San Salvatore, a medieval castle. Beckoned to this haven are Mrs Wilkins, Mrs Arbuthnot, Mrs Fisher and Lady Caroline Dester, each quietly craving a respite. Pervaded by the magical atmosphere of the place, they gradually shed their public skins and discover a harmony each of them has longed for but none has known.?At one level an escapist fantasy, at another a parable about the liberation of the spirit, this delicious confection will work its magic on all.'
