a really good book, well written, a story to read and travel in a beautyfull holiday place, and a wonderfull word, from where everyone will come back changed, and with so much realistic observations, about human nature, a very good time reading it!
Le récit extraordinaire, jubilatoire, de 4 anglaises qui font connaissance en partageant une maison de vacance en Italie. Les tensions entre elles, les motivations de chaque personnage, l'humour du récit, le décor enchanteur, l'évolution de l'histoire, tout concourt à faire un merveilleux livre distrayant et positif en même temps.
Over the years some people become more fun and interesting. On the other hand some become staunch and passionless. Seems that Lottie picked the latter to marry. One day at her club she sees an advertisement to rent an Italian villa for a month she shows this to a friend Rose and offers to share the cost.
This leads to four women with different backgrounds sharing the cost of a great adventure at the beautiful Italian villa "San Salvatore."
The story is well written and was made in to a good play as it has all the elements of understanding and misunderstanding needed for a good play. Even some explosive scenes.
There all the characters, looking for a retreat from life, find each other again; for some the first time. You will find yourself wanting it to join in.
Do not overlook the two movies with the same title.
