Overview

The Enchanted April by Elizabeth von Arnim

'The Enchanted April', a novel by Elizabeth von Arnim, follows four dissimilar women in 1920s England who leave their rainy, grey environments to go on holiday in Italy. Mrs Arbuthnot and Mrs Wilkins, who belong to the same ladies' club but have never spoken, become acquainted after reading a newspaper advertisement for a small medieval castle on the Mediterranean to be let furnished for April. They find some common ground in that both are struggling to make the best of unhappy marriages. They also reluctantly take on the waspish, elderly Mrs Fisher and the stunning but aloof Lady Caroline Dester to defray expenses. The four women come together at the castle and find rejuvenation in the tranquil beauty of their surroundings, rediscovering hope and love.

Four women from totally different backgrounds vacation together at a remote castle in Italy. Their lives are all transformed over the course of the month. All find love. The ending was a little abrupt for me, but a very nice read.

I watched the movie before I read the book and though the film was beautiful the book is much better.

The typeface on this version is so small it's basically illegible. Great "book," bad version.

A beautifully executed movie was done based on this book a number of years ago. It followed the book fairly faithfully. The book is beautifully written, with no unnecessary words or filler. It really is a classic.
