Summary

It’s a dreary February in post-World War I London when Mrs. Wilkins spots an advertisement in The Times for a small Italian castle for rent in April. She sees another member of her women’s club, Mrs. Arbuthnot, reading the same advertisement and manages to convince her that the two of them should rent it. Both are miserable and lonely in their marriages. They can’t afford the cost of the villa, San Salvatore, on their own and must advertise for two others, eventually recruiting an elderly widow named Mrs. Fisher, and Lady Caroline Dester, a beautiful young socialite desperate to escape from London and society. The four journey to Italy where San Salvatore works its magic separately on each of them, changing their lives in unexpected ways. (Summary by Diana Kiesners)

Reviews

Susie

- Enchanted April

I have seen and loved the movie. Getting to hear the whole story with the wonderful development of the characters has been a joy. Diana K more than did justice to the reading, and I felt truly enchanted. A wonderful story that I highly recommend.

Nalan

- nice

Reading is understandable.The subject is different.I recommend it.

CynthiaJ

- Marvelous

Diana K is the most outstanding reader. I was sad that story had end for she transported right to Italy. I didn't think anyone read better than Trisha G. Both are truly great but Diana K. you have a slight edge.

Teresa

- Lovely

Excellent listening!

Zoe

- special place in my heart

I listened to this some time ago and have come back to review it because it has kept a special place in my heart. I often think of the line, "It doesn't matter from where the love comes." Such a pleasure to be read this.
