I found this great book at Goodwill a few weeks ago and just finished it. It's an old classic titled "The Enchanted April" by Elizabeth Von Arnim.
It's about four very diverse women all seeking revitalization from the dreary February rains of London in the 1920s. They rent a small castle at San Salvatore, in Portofino, Italy, for the month of April.
Arriving at San Salvatore, they find it "awash with the scent of flowers, its olive groves terracing down to the sun-warmed sea." As the weeks move on they find themselves resuscitated and transformed by the magic of San Salvatore.
If you like fairytales, you will love this book.
