Overview

Elizabeth von Arnim’s novel tells the story of four dissimilar women in England in the 1920’s, who leave their damp and rainy environs to go on a holiday to a secluded coastal castle in Italy. Mrs. Arbuthnot and Mrs. Wilkins, who belong to the same ladies’ club, but have never spoken, become acquainted after reading an advertisement for villas for rent in a newspaper. They find some common ground in that both are struggling to make the best of unhappy marriages. Having decided to seek other ladies to help share expenses, they reluctantly take on the waspish, elderly Mrs. Fisher and the stunning, but aloof, Lady Caroline Dester. 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.

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.
