Following the success of her literary efforts, The Provincial Lady abandons the daily domestic grind of leaking ceilings and dead rodents in the bathroom for a publicity trip to America. Though initially nervous - as Miss S. of the Post-Office sagely advises, the country is, after all, A Long Way Off - she takes the plunge and sets off. From mixing with the literati to negotiating an unaccustomed number of bath-taps, rebuffing assumptions about England's perpetual fog to visiting her first night-club, our heroine determinedly immerses herself in both living, and providing wry commentary upon, the American Way

Laura has been married for seven years. On those occasions when an after-dinner snooze behind The Times seems preferable to her riveting conversation about their two small sons, Laura dismisses the notion that Alfred does not understand her, reflecting instead that they are what is called happily married. At thirty-four, Laura wonders if she's ever been in love - a ridiculous thing to ask oneself. Then Duke Ayland enters her life and that vexing question refuses to remain unanswered ...With Laura, beset by perplexing decisions about the supper menu, the difficulties of appeasing Nurse, and the necessity of maintaining face within the small village of Quinnerton, E.M. Delafield created her first "Provincial Lady". And in the poignancy of Laura's doubts about her marriage, she presents a dilemma which many women will recognise

England, 1917: The Midland Supply Depot distributes medical materials to hospitals, Belgian refugees to comfortable billets, and tea and sandwiches to troop-trains - in addition to a thousand other things. Charmian Vivian runs the depot with a rod of iron, both resented and admired by her underlings, and worshipped by her devoted secretary Miss Delmege. But when new clerk Grace Jones arrives, it sets the cat among the pigeons. For Grace is unimpressed by her director's posturing and claims of indispensability. Then Charmian is struck down by influenza, rendering her 'unfit for duty', and leaving the depot in Grace's capable hands
