Diary of a Provincial Lady – E. M. Delafield

£9.99

E. M. Delafield’s largely autobiographical novel takes the form of a journal written by an upper-middle-class lady living in a Devonshire village.

Written with humour, this charming novel is full of the peculiarities of daily life. The Provincial Lady of the title attempts to avoid disaster and prevent chaos from descending upon her household. But with a husband reluctant to do anything but doze behind The Times, mischievous children and trying servants, it’s a challenge keeping up appearances on an inadequate income, particularly in front of the infuriating and haughty Lady Boxe.
