The Enchanted April
The Enchanted April - Elizabeth von Arnim

Four women, strangers to one another, rent a medieval castle in Italy. Each one is fleeing from problems at home and in the midst of flowers, the sun and la dolce vita, their lives won´t ever be the same again.

 

This book is like a pandoras box full og joy and happiness and it took me completely by surprise. Suprise because I didn´t particularly like the first 90 pages.

The beginning of the book was rather slow and I have to admit that I was massivly annoyed by some of the characters, because I just couldn´t stand their entitlement. And then, all of a sudden, I became incredibly attached to the characters and the full impact of this attachment hit me in the face in the very last chapters of the book. Trust me, I´m not easily moved to tears, but at the end of this book I cried happy tears. 

And don´t get me started on the stunningly beautiful descriptions of castle and the flowers. I want to visit that place, it´s magical.

"It was very well cooked, but Mrs. Fisher had never cared for macaroni, especially not this long, worm-shaped variety. She found it difficult to eat, - slippery, wriggling off her fork, making her look, she felt, undignified when, having got it as she supposed into her mouth, ends of it yet hung out. Always, too, when she ate it she was reminded of Mr. Fisher. He had during their married life behaved very much like macaroni. He had slipped, he had wriggled, he had made her feel undignified, and when at last she had got him safe, as she thought, there had invariably been little bits of him that still, as it were, hung out."

The Enchanted April - Elizabeth von Arnim

"All the radiance of April in Italy lay gathered together at her feet. The sun poured in on her. The sea lay asleep in it, hardly stirring. Across the bay the lovely mountains, exquisitely different in colour, where asleep too in the light; and underneath her window, at the bottom of the flowerstarred grass slope from which the wall of the castle rose up, was a great cypress, cutting through the delicate blues and violets and rose-colours of the mountains and the sea like a great black sword.

[...] Her face was bathed in light. Lovely scents came up the window and caressed her. A tiny breeze gently lifted her hair. Far out in the bay a cluster of almost motionless fishing boats hovered like a flock of white birds on the tranquil sea [...]"

 

I would love to be there with her...

Samantha Chase, spotlights the beautiful bond that toes the line between crazy and amazing in the Bridal Squad. From Natalie, who always needs to be in control to Kayla the bridesmaid reluctant to even take on the role. Julianne, the Bride is slowly losing her mind as the day draws ever near, while frustrated sister Harper may be giving in to her fears. The Bridal Squad is like looking in a mirror with how relatable the scenarios are, but the area Ms. Chase never seems to miss, is the impact she makes on the heart.
