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.
"Elizabeth von Armin's most charming novel in every sense: it casts a spell...a sun-washed fairytale"
"Filled with hazy hills and fragrant flora, the novel is a dreamily sensuous description of the glories of Italian spring"
"This delicious confection will work its magic on all"
