This book seems to go by two different titles. I also found it under Lucia's Progress. It is 5th in the wonderful Mapp & Lucia series.

Lucia has turned 50, and is feeling as if she has wasted her life.

"'I must put up in large capital letters over my bed 'I am fifty'', she thought as she let herself into her house,'and that will remind me every morning and evening that I've done nothing yet which will be remembered after I am gone. I've been busy (I will say that for myself) but beyond giving others a few hours of enchantment at the piano, and helping them to keep supple, I've done nothing for the world or indeed for Tilling. I must take myself in hand.'"

The stories are set in the period between the wars, and finances are changing. Lucia decides to try investing in the market. Of course, Elizabeth Mapp follows Lucia's lead with hilarious results. Gossip, cards, dinner parties, golf, and more gossip are the things that take up the life of the people of Tilling. Jealousies, house swapping, and local politics add to the fun. E.F. Benson's social commentary is filled with the wry British humor of the time.

There is only one book left in Benson's series. I will be sad to see it end, but I am sure this series will warrant a re-read at some point.

Geez, was this written by an upper middle-class chap for the amusement of other upper middle-class folk after having read Jane Austen and Mrs. Gaskell? This is by no means the wonderful, sly, comedy of manners that Austen wrote so exquisitely, nor the lovely involvement of the world of Cranford that Mrs. Gaskell (when not feeling socially and politically motivated) wrote about. Angst-ridden social climbers, amusing to his intended audience or those who had aspirations to be that class, but not to me. I don't know why I bothered finishing it. ( )

Mapp and Major Benjy marry; Lucia starts speculating and makes a lot of money, whereas Mapp follows suit but does not have the same London advisor as Lucia so ends up accepting Lucia's offer to swap houses; once in Mallards Lucia starts excavating; she becomes a benefactress, buying a new church organ, levelling the cricket pitch and football ground, planting flowering almonds, reaping as benefits a rise in status, becoming president of the cricket and football clubs; when it is eventually suggested that she stand for mayor she decides she needs a prince escort and somehow she and Georgie propose to each other and come to a very satisfactory agreement that pleases even Grosvenor, Cadman and Foljambe.

Satirical, sparkling, malicious. 5th book in series ( )

The fifth book in the Mapp / Lucia series, published in 1935. Lucia is now permanently established in Tilling, and launches herself with gusto into everything from high finance and local politics to archaeology and the cricket club. Miss Mapp isn't going to let her take over Tilling society without a fight, but Lucia is usually more than a match for her.
Like Mapp and Lucia, this is Benson on top form, intricately plotted and full of hilariously telling social detail. ( )

Mrs. Emmeline Lucas was walking briskly and elegantly up and down the cinder path which traversed her kitchen garden and was so conveniently dry underfoot even after heavy rain.
