Book Description

I read In the Mountains by Elizabeth von Arnim in the place where it is set: the mountains of Switzerland. I hadn’t realized at the time that it was set in Switzerland – I was reading it on my e-reader so there was no jacket blurb to remind me – but it was wonderful to begin the book on my first day in Wengen and discover the protagonist describing the very scene that had greeted me on my arrival: I was prepared to arrive here in one of the mountain mists that settle down on one sometimes for days, – vast, wet stretches of gray stuff like some cold, sodden blanket, muffling one away from the mountains opposite, and the valley, and the sun.
