Written in her eighties, the memoirs of Mary Elizabeth Lucy reveal a character of rare strength and determination. They are high-spirited, discerning and delightfully free from prudishness. She draws pen-portraits of those she met, Queen Victoria and Sir Walter Scott among them, and provides an authentic view of life in fashionable 19th century society.
