Reviews

"This delicious confection will work its magic on all." --Daily Telegraph

"Extraordinarily well-written . . . It is witty, human, often very beautiful." --Punch "Brims with magic and laughter." --The Guardian "[One] of the wittiest novels in the English language . . . The ultimate renter's novel: a month in and out of a gorgeous place where extraordinary things happen; then let someone else deal with the plumbing . . . It's a confection, it's a dream, it's a fleeting April romance, but oh, how hard to get this story out of your head. . . . No one can come away from this April without thinking, even for just a moment, that the course of true love, unsmooth as it may run, is certainly worth taking." --Brenda Bowen, author of Enchanted August, from the Introduction
