The Enchanted AprilBook - 2015
The charming, slyly comic novel of romantic longing and transformation that inspired the Oscar-nominated film a Escaping dreary London for the sunshine of Italy, four very different women take up an offer advertised in the Times for a osmall medieval Italian Castle on the shores of the Mediterranean to be let furnished for the month of April.o As each blossoms in the warmth of the Italian spring, quite unexpected changes occur. An immediate bestseller upon its first publication, in 1922, The Enchanted April set off a craze for tourism to the Italian Riviera that continues today. Published here to coincide with a contemporary retelling, Enchanted August by Brenda Bowen, it's a witty ensemble piece and the perfect romantic rediscovery for fans of Jess Walter's Beautiful Ruins and Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love as well as of Downton Abbey and the hit movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
