The Enchanted April (Penguin Classics) Paperback
by Elizabeth von Arnim. Edition Date:: 06/02/2015
Escaping dreary London for the sunshine of Italy, four very different women take up an offer advertised in the Times for a “small medieval Italian Castle on the shores of the Mediterranean to be let furnished for the month of April.” As each blossoms in the warmth of the Italian spring, quite unexpected changes occur.
