Queen Lucia is the first book in E.F. Benson's Lucia and Mapp series that chronicles the lives of the upper crust in rural England. It was originally published in 1920. I really loved Benson's Mrs.... More > Ames, so I was excited to start his most famous series.
Queen Lucia is really funny. Benson shows all the foibles of the upper class. Lucia is the head of society, but no one really knows how she got there and they all want to dethrone her.
This was a fun, light book that I think would be a great beach or plane read. It will make you giggle and smile and feel superior, which is always nice. Definitely looking forward to reading the rest of this series!< Less
