Searching for Elizabeth  Jul 5, 2008
Three friends and I searched for books by Elizabeth several years ago. Almost all our copies were found in used and/or antique bookstores. It was wonderful fun to find a rare book by Elizabeth, but even more wonderful was to have a chance to read each of her 22 books! They are all marvelous, but Elizabeth and Her German Garden, Solitary Summer, The Enchanted April, Vera, and Love are some of my favorites. There are two biographies of Elizabeth, and I encourage reading them if you want to know more about this highly intelligent and accomplished woman. One biography is 'Elizabeth' by Karen Usborne, the other Elizabeth of the German Garden by Leslie de Charms (one of Elizabeth's daughters). Two of her books have been made into movies, "Enchanted April" and "Mr. Skeffington". I am so pleased to see some of her books back in print! I own all 22 and plan to reread all of them in the near future. I hope that Elizabeth will be rediscovered by a whole new generation of women...and men too.
great read  Jul 16, 2007
Great look at life for a monied, determined woman at the turn of the last century. With an Edith Wharton insight, the Countess shares innermost thoughts and treasured moments with the reader in a most enchanting novella.
No real gardening tips, but lovely narrative. I very much enjoyed reading it.
Portrait of a Charming, Intelligent and Practical Woman  Mar 4, 2007
I found this book in a dusty box of old books I bought at a garage sale when I was in high school. After I read it I began to collect her other novels which at this time were all out of print and could only be found in antique stores. In a way Elizabeth became my role model of how to be a wife and mother. I could have done worse. She referred to her husband affectionately as T. M. O. W. (The Man of Wrath). And of course what man wouldn't be a man of wrath in Victorian times. It was a good lesson in the difference between male and female temperaments. Elizabeth enjoyed her "guilty pleasures." She said she enjoyed reading seed catalogs during long winter months and admitted that the pleasure was probably magnified by the fact that she should have been wrapping Christmas presents. Elizabeth became my life-long friend.
no title  Nov 17, 2005
This is a most wonderful piece. I love the way Elizabeth always calls her husband the Man of Wrath; I love her wit; I love her descriptions of the forest silence and the Baltic Sea in winter; her children are always the April baby, the May baby, the June baby. Her writing is filled with phrases which could be lifted whole and put in a book of quotes full of wise words. Should be a classic, instead of moldering on a shelf. Thank god I own it! Probably written around 1900.
Surprisingly modern memoirs of Edwardian author   Nov 12, 2004
To me, this is much the best of Von Arnim's writing. Describing the joys and tribulations of a young English woman marrying a German aristocrat she centres on the haphazard creation of her garden and the activities of her children in an examination of European mores.

Her tone is anything but dusty. A top-selling author of her day she seems to have more in common with - the best - Sunday newspaper columnists of today than with her contemporaries. She battles both with chauvinism and the demands of running a country house which threaten to quell her free-wheeling attitude to life, in a style as fresh as it was at the turn of the century.
