The solitary summer by Elizabeth Von Arnim( Book )

75 editions published between 1889 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thus begins Elizabeth von Arnim's delightful companion to the famous Elizabeth and Her German Garden, a witty, lyrical account of a rejuvenating summer. Descriptions of magnificent larkspurs and burning nasturtiums give way to those of cooling forest walks - and of clambering up the mud bank when the miller is not in view. Rainy days prompt a little philanthropy, until the sun returns Elizabeth to the refuge of her beloved plants. Yet the months are not as solitary as she'd planned: there is the Man of Wrath to pacify and the April, May and June babies to play with. Here, with the pleasing astringency for which she is noted, Elizabeth von Arnim returns to the heroine and garden she immortalized

Four very diverse women, all seeking revitalization from the dreary February rains of 1920s London, rent the small medieval castle of San Salvatore, nestled high above the bay of Portofino, Italy. Arriving at San Salvatore, they find it awash with the scent of flowers, its olive groves terracing down to the sun-warmed sea. Mrs. Wilkins and Mrs. Arbuthnot are glad to leave their insipid duties and unresponsive husbands behind. The elderly Mrs. Fisher wishes only to sit in the sun and replay her youthful memories, and the bewitchingly beautiful Lady Caroline Dester desires to have seclusion from all her adoring suitors. Amid the canopies of fragrant wisteria, in the sweet sunshine and melodious silence, four lives are transformed and resuscitated by the magic of San Salvatore
