Read full description of the books:
I enjoyed this next episode of the doings of the Provincial Lady, though not quite as much as I did the first two volumes. I'm not sure whether this was because the freshness was wearing off the idea, or because her trip to America (she ventures up into Canada as well as to various cities in the US) took us away from the funniness of the doings in the village. What was delightful was the kindness and hospitality of the many people who welcomed her in the course of her book tour.
She still has her moments though. In a discussion about English food, a young man called Taylor said that "he has suffered a good deal from English cabbage. Savouries, on the other hand, are excellent. They are eaten, he surprisingly adds, with a special little knife and fork, usually of gold. Can only suppose that Taylor, when in England, moves exclusively in ducal circles, and hastily resolve never in any circumstances to ask him to my own house where savouries, if any, are eaten with perfectly ordinary electro-plate."

Other sequels of note are her experiences looking for war-work during the Phoney War in 1939, and her experiences as a tourist in the Soviet Union.
