 Enchanted April Synopsis:  (The year: 1922)

Based on the best-selling classic novel by Elizabeth von Arnim, two London housewives on a post-World War I journey pool their savings to rent a villa in Italy for a ladies-only holiday away.

Together under the Mediterranean sun, the four women clash—and then begin to bond and bloom.  Their month-long holiday transforms their discontent in joyful and unexpected ways

“Enchanted April” 

by Matthew Barber

When two frustrated London housewives decide to rent a villa in Italy for a holiday away from their bleak marriages, they recruit two very different English women to share the cost and experience.  There, among the wisteria blossoms and Mediterranean sunshine, all four bloom again, rediscovering themselves in ways that they, and we could never have expected.
