Publisher's Summary

It began in a women's club in London on a February afternoon. A discreet advertisement in The Times, addressed to "Those who Appreciate Wistaria and Sunshine..." lures four very different women away from the dismal British weather to San Salvatore, a castle high above a bay on the sunny Italian Riviera. There, the Mediterranean spirit stirs the souls of Mrs Arbuthnot, Mrs Wilkins, Lady Caroline Dester, and Mrs Fisher, and remarkable changes occur.

A Lovely Listen

This is a real feel-good story. Eleanor Bron is an excellent reader who brings out the full humour of the dialogue, as well as doing full justice to the descriptions of Italy. Hearing it read aloud, as opposed to reading it from the page, totally enhances this classic book, and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants a mental escape to a perfect destination.

I cannot say I disliked this book but it was a bit dull, not much going on except for the last half an hour of listening. The narrator does not add enough "spice" to the story. The description of the landscapes and the characters of the book is very poetic and pleasant, though.
