it was amazing

I really needed to re-read this charming fairy tale of love. Four very diverse women come together to escape London in the a very dark and dreary winter, and their domestically difficult situations. Two young wives who feel separated and unloved by their husbands. A middle aged woman who felt old and elderly before her time and as though she belonged in the Victorian world and not the modern world of the 1920's. A titled, amazingly beautiful, over petted and utterly miserable young woman who felt that love being taken from her once she wanted nothing to do with it again.

All four are vibrant intelligent women who are just waiting for adventure and maybe if they are lucky love. So they escape in spring to Italy, to a beautiful small castle on a hill. Full of flowers and beauty. And there they all go through their own inner growth. I won't tell you how it works out for them but each of them surprise themselves and each other.
