Book synopsis (The back of the book says)
Across the Channel, the battle rages ... On the Tilling front, another battle is being fought-the constant war of wits and social ascendancy between Lucia Pillson and Elizabeth Mapp-Flint. Lucia, with her superior style, timeless elegance, occasional low cunning and husband Georgie-whose talent for transforming powdered eggs and canned meat into gourmet fare has turned him into a minor celebrity-invariably wins the day. Although Elizabeth may have lost a battle or two, she definitely hasn't lost the war-until she carelessly gives Lucia the ultimate weapon against her, upsetting the balance of power in Lucia's favor. But how long will Lucia be able to retain the admiration of all Tilling if her power remains unchecked? After all, absolute power corrupts absolutely. Originally published in 1985, Lucia in Wartime is the first of Tom Holt's officially sanctioned sequels to the hilarious "Lucia" novels of E.F. Benson.Lucia and Me: A Conversation with Tom Holt, from November 2012 about the E.F. Bensons sequels.
Reviews of this book
After reading this book Joanna Danemans wrote this on the 14th February 2003
I HAVE read Lucia in Wartime. Holt really captures Benson's delightful prose. Georgie, however, succeeds in getting out from under Lucia's thumb as never before.
