    It began in a women's club in London on a February afternoon. A discreet advertisement in The Times, addressed to "Those who Appreciate Wistaria and Sunshine..." lures four very different women away from the dismal British weather to San Salvatore, a castle high above a bay on the sunny Italian Riviera. There, the Mediterranean spirit stirs the souls of Mrs Arbuthnot, Mrs Wilkins, Lady Caroline Dester, and Mrs Fisher, and remarkable changes occur.

    Indoors are servants, meals, and furniture. There, too, is The Man of Wrath, her upright Teutonic husband, inspiring in Elizabeth a mixture of irritation, affection, and irreverence. But outside she can escape domestic routine, read favorite books, play with her three babies and garden to her heart's content. Through Elizabeth's eyes we watch the seasons, from May's "oasis of bird-cherries and greenery" to the time when "snow carpets her Pomeranian wilderness".

    gentle romance begins innocently enough in the stalls of a London theatre where Catherine is enjoying her ninth and Christopher his thirty-sixth visit to the same play. He is a magnificent young man with flame-coloured hair. She is the sweetest little thing in a hat. There is just one complication: Christopher is 25, while Catherine is just a little bit older. Flattered by the passionate attentions of youth, Catherine, with marriage and motherhood behind her, is at first circumspect, but finally succumbs to her lover's charms.

    In un club della Londra anni Venti due signore inglesi scoprono di essere accomunate da una vita amorosa insoddisfacente, molto diversa da quella che avevano sognato il giorno del matrimonio. Mrs Wilkins, timida e repressa, è sposata con un avvocato ambizioso che "lodava la parsimonia tranne quando si trattava del cibo che finiva nel suo piatto"; Mrs Arbuthnot, estremamente religiosa, è sposata a uno scrittore di biografie sulle amanti dei re: per una donna come lei, una cosa davvero sconveniente.

    L'autrice, riscoperta recentemente dalla letteratura di genere, non ha mai pubblicato, in vita, questo romanzo, che fu scoperto dall'editore fra le sue carte e pubblicato integralmente (anche se mancava il capitolo IV, del quale peraltro non si sente la mancanza). Perché il romanzo, che risale al 1901, non sia mai stato pubblicato dall'autrice, è ignoto: certamente il fatto che la protagonista si chiami Elizabeth, come in diverse altre sue opere, fa pensare a una certa ispirazione autobiografica, che può essere la causa della sua non pubblicazione.
