If Elizabeth Bennet had the washing of her own petticoats, Sarah thought, she would be more careful not to trudge through muddy fields. It is wash-day for the housemaids at Longbourn House, and Sarah's hands are chapped and bleeding. Domestic life below stairs, ruled tenderly and forcefully by Mrs Hill the housekeeper, is about to be disturbed by the arrival of a new footman smelling of the sea, and bearing secrets. For in Georgian England, there is a world the young ladies in the drawing room will never know, a world of poverty, love, and brutal war.

“A great read!”

This is Baker's attempt at telling us the servants side of Longbourn, and what a good attempt it is. She has clearly done her research well and painted a clear picture of what the other side of Longbourn would... More

“A below stairs view of Pride and Prejudice”

As I’m not a great fan of Pride and Prejudice, I was wary about reading this book. I needn’t have worried as I was drawn in almost from the beginning into the engaging stories and backgrounds of the Longbourne... More
