The Enchanted April
Anyone looking out their window on a dull, dreary day can imagine the lure of the sun soaked coastline of an Italian castle blooming with wildflowers during the month of April. The four British women, varying in ages and situation are all drawn to San Salvatore, Italy and immediately begin to change. I loved how they all opened their hearts to love and friendship by recognizing the emptiness of their lives. It's not just the sun and rest though that brought about the changes...I believe it was true friendship with extraordinary people. This is a novel I will read over and over again. Each time I take away something from new of it as well. Lottie is my favorite character. She really came out of her shell and through her sheer joy was able to influence all the others to be happy.
