The Enchanted April, written in 1922, is Elizabeth von Armin's most charming novel in every sense: it casts a spell. In narrative terms, it's fairly slight: a sun-washed fairytale, delicious in its contrivance. But it's also a paean to the transformative power of travel. Von Arnim has an eye for small human failings, the little acts of pettiness and selfishness in which most people indulge. She is perceptive about the way people misread one another's good (and not so good) intentions, and the early chapters read like a comedy of miscommunication.

Von Arnim, Elizabeth h harmony as there was, increased it. He fitted in. He was determined to please, and he did please.

Elizabeth von Arnim was born on 31 August 1866 in Australia. She was cousin to the writer Katherine Mansfield. In 1890 she married her first husband, Count Henning August von Arnim-Schlagenthin, a Prussian aristocrat, with whom she had five children. Its instant success was followed by many more novels, including Vera (1921) and The Enchanted April (1922), and another, All the Dogs of My Life (1936). She separated from Count von Arnim in 1908, and after his death two years later she built a house in Switzerland, marrying John Francis Stanley Russell in 1916.

You've seen the movie, now read the book. If you have ever been to Italy, or even dreamed of going to Italy, you will love this sun-drenched, flower-infused fantasy. I say fantasy but in my heart I like to think this beautiful tale of friendship and self-awareness could be true. Written in 1922, the language is at times mannered and a bit precious, but the situations and the author's view of life are wonderfully contemporary. I found myself highlighting phrases and sentences with great delight. And the mark of a great book, when I reached the end, I let out a contented sigh.

I loved this book, loved the almost magical transformation of the characters, the way they related to each other and assisted in each other's recovery/transformation without doing anything deliberate! Upon starting, I thought it was maybe a little too simple or maybe we were spending too much time in the character's heads, but it didn't take long for me to become completely absorbed in their plan to spend an enchanted April in Italy. And bonus! I felt like I was in Italy most of the time. I felt more relaxed, more generous, more loving while I was reading this book.

This particular copy of this book is disappointing. It’s a very poor printing, and doesn’t seem to be printed professionally. I was first attracted to the beautiful picture on the cover, but when the book arrived was very disappointed. The book itself is huge, not at all the size a paperback book—it’s more the size of a workbook, with the text stretched all across the large pages. It would be very difficult and frustrating to read.

The Enchanted Castle itself is a wonderful read, but just in pretty much any other copy of the book.

This books goes from dreary life to brilliance. It is a love story and a morality tale. A coming of age drama and a magical ride.
The writing is amazing that even years after it was first written it still holds new and relevant.
I love this book. I read first when I was in my twenties and have reread it every year since and still find new meanings and excitement every time I read it. I wore out my print version so I was so pleased to find the kindle version that I can always keep with me.
A must read for every woman who had ever dreamed of getting away, no matter how old you are.
Five stars is not enough.

Transported from a dreary English winter to a magical Italian spring, four ladies, each dramatically different, find happiness. A fairie tale for its time ...

I saw the movie years ago and was "enchanted " by it. the book is equally lovely. beautifully written. you feel as if your in Italy. the characters are interesting, flawed, and fully imagined. they are people you would love to have in your life. and for a short time you do! wonderful!

I read this because I had seen the movie and I was absolutely delighted - it's much better than the movie, which is delightful. The plot, a simple narrative, keeps tactfully out of the way of getting to know the characters, and the prose is delightful - fresh, witty, and in places lyrical. I ordered the complete works on the strength of this and I am saving them for a long, uninterrupted read in a beautiful place.
Loved the story but this book was fake; meaning that it was full of typos as though someone re-typed it, there's no publisher's info printed.
