Description - The Enchanted April by Elizabeth Von Arnim
Four women, with very different backgrounds and characters - the artless Lottie Wilkins, the pious Rose Arbuthnot, the cantankerous Mrs Fisher and the haughty Lady Caroline Dester - respond to an advertisement in The Times offering a medieval castle to rent in Italy that April. As their joint holiday begins, tensions fl are up between them, but they soon bond over their past misfortunes and rediscover hope and the pleasures of life in their tranquil surroundings.
A huge best-seller when it was published in 1922, The Enchanted April has inspired
generations of readers since and established Portofi no and the Italian Riviera as a mainstay of the tourist circuit.
