Publisher's Summary

No one could have been more surprised than our Provincial Lady to receive an invitation from her American agent to travel transatlantic and embark upon a programme of lectures and signings. She was particularly amazed because, having received an overture sometime before and feeling that she would rather stay in the English countryside, she requested that they meet quite a few ‘requirements’ before she would agree to go.  

They met every stipulation. ‘Am completely thrown on my beam-ends by this. Can I possibly be worth this?’ And so off she goes. And, courtesy of her diary, we have an entertaining account of her shipboard life, her arrival and immediate encounters with enthusiasm - which sometimes stretches her credulity, and English patience. It is all go, window-shopping on Fifth Avenue, cocktails, meetings with a wide range of writers, society ladies, and even an old acquaintance. And then there are the book shop signings, the lectures to the good, the great - and the lesser great. It is a whirlwind. How does our Provincial Lady respond to all this after the slower pace (really? What about the domestic dramas?) in her country home? Georgina Sutton once again represents her with vigour, humour and a lively personality. This is book 3 in the Provincial Lady series.

Not so good

This is the 3rd book in the series and it is not as interesting as the first two books. There is also much more racist language in this book.

Narrator is just right

These are so enjoyable and the narrator is just right. I do hope the other two titles in the series will be released as well.

Excellent

Narrator captures the humourous tone of the diaries really well. Please release Provincial Lady in Wartime which is my favourite
