About this title


Here is Lucia in one of her most extraordinary adventures: can she conquer her new home of London, and still hold her societal ground over the stately country mansions of Riseholme as well? Will the citizens of Riseholme - hurt and maddened by Lucia's desertion for the great city - carry out their plot of revenge?

From the Publisher:

Lucia in London is E.F. Benson's second acclaimed Lucia novel. After her husband's Auntie Amy dies and leaves her London home to Lucia and her sweet but dull husband, Peppino, the Queen of English provincial society attempts to conquer London. Using her best social climbing instincts, nerves of steel, and an absolute inability to be embarrassed, Lucia dresses up "tightum" and prepares to mingle with the beau monde. She skillfully manages to get into London's fanciest parties without being invited, and somehow coaxes the most distinguished and wealthiest guests to come to tea. A secret society of "Luciaphiles" springs up in London, among society members who never tire of watching Lucia get into, and out of, all kinds of trouble. Both a sharply observed social commentary and a masterful comic novel, Lucia in London is a thoroughly enjoyable work from one of England's most gifted satirical authors.
