"If Elizabeth Bennet had the washing of her own petticoats,' Sarah thought, 'she would be more careful not to tramp through muddy fields."
After reading Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice" you may find yourself wanting to spend more time with the Bennet family. This book "Longbourn" by Jo Baker brings the story of the Bennet family to life through the eyes of their servants. Relive the romances of Jane and Mr.Bingley and Elizabeth and Mr.Darcy once again from behind the scenes. This is a beautifully written tribute to Jane's original novel and gives a fresh perspective to this well-known story and provides insight into the lives of servants working in a large country home at that time.
