A sparkling summer debut of love and reawakening that
transports the classic The Enchanted April
to a picture-perfect island in Maine
rainy summer in Park Slope, Brooklyn, when two
unhappily married women, Lottie Wilkinson and Rose
Arbuthnot, spot a tattered ad on their children's
preschool bulletin board:
Little Lost Island, Maine.
Old pretty cottage to rent
Spring water, blueberries, sea glass.
Neither can afford it, but they
smitten. To share expenses, they find two companions:
Caroline Dester, the exquisite darling of the
independent movie scene, and elderly Beverly Fisher, who is
recovering from heartbreaking loss.
Transformed by the refreshing summer breezes, steamed
lobsters, and cocktail hours on the wrap-around
porch, the unlikely quartet gradually begin to open up to
one another, and ultimately rediscover their
capacity to love and be loved.
With a cast of quirky
and endearing characters set against the
beauty of an idyllic New England summer, ENCHANTED
AUGUST brilliantly updates a beloved classic and
offers readers a universal fantasy: one glorious summer
month away from it all.
