The Hot Year was a wartime year...
It was also the year in Lucy Slade’s life which took her from St. John’s Wood to Delhi and Rangoon and back again, changed and a little chastened, but at heart wiser and gladder than when she had set out.
It seemed like two hundred years, so much had happened, marrying Miles Spender and meeting Steve McMahon to begin with. Then, the endless predicaments in which Lucy’s impulsive, scatter-brained nature landed her in India that was still British, and the continual round of parties with the Forces which it was Lucy’s patriotic duty to attend.
