Queen Lucia Publisher's Summary
Funny, outrageous, sometimes touching, and perhaps a little bit naughty - in Queen Lucia, E. F. Benson has created not only a wonderful character study in Mrs. Lucas, but a whole village of memorable characters.
Emmeline Lucas, "La Lucia" as she likes to be known, is the social queen of Riseholme, presiding over her subjects and directing their interests in art and culture. But her throne is not secure...there are rumblings of discontent among her friends and her supremacy looks decidedly precarious.
Queen Lucia is outrageous, appealing, sometimes touching, and very, very funny. A joyously affectionate and satirical portrait of how the idle rich of Riseholme, a very English village where snobbery is an art, amuse themselves.
Written in 1920, Queen Lucia is in the public domain.
