  1. Yes! Yes! I have read this and was totally enchanted too! I loved her honesty throughout, the guilt she felt for wanting to spend her days in the garden! I am so glad I have found someone else who loves this book!

  2. I will have to check this out! I read "Diary of a Provincial Lady" on your reccomendation & loved it…sounds similar in feeling…

  3. Another treasure you gave us was project guttenburg – and several of darling Elizabeth's books are there for the reading, for anyone not lucky enough to have stumbled upon their own copies yet!
    You know that is EXACTLY how I feel about discovering special books- it is a magical kind of treasure hunt!

  5. Have you seen the video (available still from Amazon.co.uk) called Enchanted April?
    You MUST get it, unfortunately not on DVD as yet, but written by the same author…it is a real treat, so pretty and lush with Italian scenes, beautiful acting and vintage details.

  6. Forgot to say…do you or any of your visitors have any good DVD or video recommendations, anything 'vintagey'

  7. Wow! You like this book? I thought I was the only one. It is wonderful! I had to comment, I generally lurk, but I had to (ahem) expose myself to comment on this one. Aah, domestic, German bliss. Did you know that German women were renouned for their intelligence and their housekeeping the in the 19th century?

  9. Alison, I just order a 1901 copy of this book on Ebay based on the excerpts you shared alone – this is just my kind of book. I prefer (gently) reading the very old books so I can imagine all the women who held and read the book before me…can't wait to get it! Thank you SO much!

  10. Don't know how I missed this post before…
    I have this book and have been waiting for the right time to read it (Springtime)–I'm now halfway through and am loving it!
