Enchanted April by Elizabeth von Arnim

The Enchanted April by Elizabeth von Arnim. 1986 Virago Modern Classic reprint (c/r 1922), 361 pages. Cousin of Katherine Mansfield, von Arnim was a literary success in her time, writing more than twenty books. According to the Guardian: "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."

Condition: Good reading copy. Crease on front corner.

"Such delights were only for the rich."
