Tuesday Intros: The Enchanted April

April is not so enchanting here today, we have had heavy downfalls of hail which have lowered the already cold temperature even further. Escapist literature needed! This is my favourite novel about escaping rain-sodden spring in Blighty.
 

Here is the first page for Diane who hosts Tuesday Intros, where we post the opening lines of a book that we've read.

I love this book, it's a fairy story for grownups really! I've bought hardback copies of it as presents for various friends and rather wish that I'd treated myself at the same time. This is the cover of one of the hardback editions.
And interior illustration.

If you are in need of some sunshine and happy endings then you might enjoy this book just as much as I do!

    1. If you live in a country with long winters and cold, rainy spring weather then this book is the sort of fairytale to dream about!

  4. That's a long first sentence! This sounds like the kind of book I'd enjoy reading with a cup of tea at my side and with plenty of time to savor the story.

    1. Yes, it's a cup of tea and a slice of cake sort of book, Sandra.

    1. It's an old-fashioned sort of book, set in the past, so certainly won't appeal to everyone, Charlie. I'm a bit set in the past myself, so I love it!
