Lucia Victrix: Mapp and Lucia, Lucia's Progress, T&hellip by E. F. Benson
This is a great read,very funny and an ideal book to take on vacation. These Mapp and Lucia stories by E.F.Benson,have been in print since 1935,and give us an insight into the lives of some very interesting and funny "Tilling"folk. It's an easy read,and I found it very,very funny.
