From the Publisher:

The Provincial Lady has a nice house, a nice husband (usually asleep behind The Times) and nice children. In fact, maintaining Niceness is the Provincial Lady’s goal in life — her raison d'être. She never raises her voice, rarely ventures outside Devon (why would she?), only occasionally allows herself to become vexed by the ongoing servant problem, and would be truly appalled by the confessional mode that has gripped the late 20th century. The Provincial Lady, after all, is part of what made Britain great.

About the Author:

E. M. Delafield was the nom de plume of Edmée Elizabeth Monica de la Pasture Dashwood (1890-1943), who produced more than forty volumes of fiction, plays, and essays over twenty-six years in the 1920s and '30s. However, her Provincial Lady series, first published for the weekly magazine Time and Tide, has proven to be her most celebrated work.
