England between the wars was a paradise of calm and leisure for the very, very rich. Into this enclave is born Mrs. Emmeline Lucas - La Lucia, as she is known - a woman determined to lead a life quite different from the subdued formality of her class.

With her cohort, Georgie Pillson, and her husband, Peppino, Lucia upends the greats of high society: the imperious Lady Ambermere and her equally imperious dog, Pug; the odious Piggy and Goosie Antrobus; the Christian Scientist Daisy Quantrock, with her penchant for the foreign; and all the rest of the small English town that the British rich call their country home.

Beset on all sides by pretenders to her social throne, Lucia brings culture, fine arts, excitement, and intrigue into this cloistered realm.

    " 4.5 stars. Funny, sweet, charming. The story made me want to live in a little village and join in the garden parties and dinners with tableaux. "

    " This was about a woman and her husband in a small town of Rhishome and I believe it to be somewhere in England. Lucia is known of this town and all the people of the village are summoned to her house for the arts as she is known to know everything to hear about the arts. It was funny and I enjoyed it, but the ending was a bit off. "
