The Provincial Lady in Wartime is a largely autobiographical novel by English author E. M. Delafield. It takes the form of a journal of the life of an upper-middle class Englishwoman in the 1930s. This is the fourth and last of Delafield’s autobiographical novel series, resumed at the insistence of Harold Macmillan. The Lady gets a flat in Buckingham Street (above the offices of her agent AD Peters) and works in the Air Raid Precautions HQ under the Adelphi building. Delafield became a director of Time and Tide, a British weekly political and literary review magazine. When the editor wanted some light middles , preferably in serial form, she promised to think of something to submit . It was thus, in 1930, that her most popular and enduring work Diary of a Provincial Lady was written. Diary of a Provincial Lady (1930) inspired several sequels which chronicled later portions of her life: The Provincial Lady Goes Further (1932), The Provincial Lady in America (1934), and The Provincial Lady in Wartime (1940). The Provincial Lady in Wartime was first published in 1940. E-book: ePUB, 63,800 words, average reading time 5 hours, 20 min.
