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

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, this delightful novel is imbued with the descriptive power and light-hearted irreverence for which Elizabeth von Arnin is renowned.

‘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

Observer

Santa Montefiore
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.
