Waterstones Says

A quartet of indomitable women gather on the shores of the Mediterranean determined to transform their fortunes in Von Arnim’s light, enchanting character study written with exquisite poise and tenderness.

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY BRENDA BOWEN

Mrs Wilkins and Mrs Arbuthnot, cowed and neglected by their husbands, make a daring plan: they will have a holiday. Leaving a drab and rainy London one April and arriving on the shores of the Mediterranean, they discover a flower-filled paradise of beauty, warmth and leisure. Joined by the beautiful Lady Caroline and domineering Mrs Fisher, also in flight from the burdens of their daily lives, the four women proceed to transform themselves and their prospects.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An enchanting novel, witty, touching and very perceptively written, which will sweep you into wisteria and sunshine -- Santa Montefiore
Elizabeth von Armin's most charming novel in every sense: it casts a spell...a sun-washed fairytale * Observer *
A warm and uplifting book. (Very different from the kind I write!)...I remain in awe of a writer who can produce an enthralling story out of so little. When I'm plotting my books, I think of Von Arnim, and try to balance the dark with some lighter characterisation. -- S.J. Bolton
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 *
This delicious confection will work its magic on all * Daily Telegraph *

“A British Classic written by a Baroness”

The author wrote this book in an easy to read style yet full of visual details, so that decades later it was made into an outstanding movie with script almost verbatim to this novel. It is outwardly a story for women... More
