The Enchanted April, Paperback

The Enchanted April Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



A notice in "The Times" addressed to 'Those who Appreciate Wistaria and Sunshine' advertises a 'small mediaeval Italian Castle on the shores of the Mediterranean to be let furnished for the month of April'.

Four very different women take up the offer, escaping dreary London for the sunshine of Italy.

Among the party are Mrs Wilkins and Mrs Arthuthnot, both fleeing unappreciative husbands; beautiful Lady Caroline, sick of being 'grabbed' by lovestruck men; and the imperious Mrs Fisher, who spends her time remembering the bearded 'great men' she knew in her Victorian childhood.

By the end of their holiday, all the women will fall completely under the spell of Italy in this funny, insightful and very charming novel.
