Elizabeth Von Armin

Paperback $9.99 - Bloomsbury
Fiction - Published: 1/Jul/2018 - ISBN: 9781847497215

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 flare 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 Portofino and the Italian Riviera as a mainstay of the tourist circuit. Elizabeth von Arnim (1866 1941) was an Australian-born British novelist who was married to a Prussian aristocrat. Her most famous works include Elizabeth and Her German Garden and The Enchanted April. 'Italian holidays get more than their fair share of literary attention, but this uplifting novel is unmissable reading it is almost as good as taking a holiday oneself.' - The Observer
