In postwar Britain, the quaint town of Tilling is feeling the pull of both the modern world and its Norman past. Elizabeth Mapp-Flint, in yet another bid to wrest power back from her social rival Lucia Pillson now the town s mayor purchases a motor-car. Hoping to improve her shaky motoring skills in private, she makes a significant tactical error by leaving town. Lucia profits from Elizabeth s absence by putting one of her ideas into action: the embroidery of a tapestry depicting the history of Tilling, one that will surely surpass Bayeux s. All Lucia s subjects are called upon to labour long and hard in its execution. Meanwhile Elizabeth, stranded in Southampton, happens upon a game of Monopoly in her hotel room, and minus her broken-winged chariot hurries home to rescue her fellow Tillingites from the tedium of Lucia s latest worthy endeavor. Who will prove the greater master of Monopoly? What will become of the abandoned tapestry? Is Elizabeth really descended from Norman nobility? Is Mallards haunted, and if so, who saw the ghost first Lucia, its current resident, or Elizabeth, its former owner? It is not in the best interests of the Tillingites to allow either woman to prevail for long. For in the end, Lucia and Elizabeth s tactical maneuvering and petty victories and defeats offer the best entertainment in town. Originally published in 1986, Lucia Triumphant is the second of Tom Holt s officially sanctioned sequels to the hilarious Lucia novels of E.F. Benson.

About the Author:

Tom Holt was born in 1961 in London, England. His first book, Poems By Tom Holt , was published when he was twelve years old. While he was still a student at Oxford he wrote two sequels to E F Benson s Lucia series. After an undistinguished seven-year stint as a lawyer, he became a full-time writer in 1995 and has published over thirty novels. Tom lives with his wife and daughter in the west of England. As well as writing, he raises pigs and pedigree Dexter cattle.

From AudioFile:

In the fictional English village of Tilling sometime after the WWI, concerns of trench warfare abroad have been replaced with a communal fixation on the social and political battles of two formidable town matrons, Lucia and Elizabeth. Lucia launches offenses such as a Tilling tapestry project and spends considerable time countering moves by Elizabeth, such as driving a motor car, introducing the game of Monopoly, and presenting fake aristocratic ancestors. Norma West reads this story of foolish pursuits rather too well. She makes the characters all too believable, a strategy that unfortunately means all too irritating. She produces just the right note for Lucia, with her cloying appeals and affected use of Italian. Listeners will find this story either charming and funny or trivial and inane.

In postwar Britain, the quaint town of Tilling is feeling the pull of both the modern world and its Norman past. Elizabeth Mapp-Flint, in yet another bid to wrest power back from her social rival Lucia Pillson-now the town s mayor-purchases a motor-car. Hoping to improve her shaky motoring skills in private, she makes a significant tactical error by leaving town. Lucia profits from Elizabeth s absence by putting one of her ideas into action: the embroidery of a tapestry depicting the history of Tilling, one that will surely surpass Bayeux s.
