A discreet advertisement in 'The Times', addressed to 'Those who Apppreciate Wisteria and Sunshine...' is the impetus for a revelatory month for four very different women. High above the bay on the Italian Riviera stands San Salvatore, a mediaeval castle. Beckoned to this haven are Mrs. Wilkins, Mrs Arbuthnot, Mrs Fisher and Lady Caroline Dester, each quietly craving a respite. Lulled by the Mediterranean spirit, they gradually shed their skins and discover a harmony each of them has longed for but never known.

First published in 1922 and reminscient of 'Elizabeth and her German Garden', this delightful novel is imbued with the descriptive power and light-hearted irreverence for which Elizabeth von Arnin is renowned.

MEDIA REVIEWS

An enchanting novel, witty, touching and very perceptively written, which will sweep you into wisteria and sunshine - Santa Montefiore

Filled with hazy hills and fragrant flora, the novel is a dreamily sensuous description of the glories of Italian spring - Adam Nicolson, Mail on Sunday

Elizabeth von Armin's most charming novel in every sense: it casts a spell...a sun-washed fairytale - Observer

At one level an escapist fantasy, at another a parable about the liberation of the spirit, this delicious confection will work its magic on all. - 'The Daily Telegraph'
