Longbourn - by Jo Baker
Publisher: Random House
Check Library Catalog Pub Date: 10/08/2013
ISBN-13: 9780385351232
ISBN-10: 0385351232
In a story that runs parallel to the events of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Longbourn examines the lives of the Bennet family's household servants, whose days are spent laying fires, cooking meals, emptying chamber pots, changing linens, and performing other domestic tasks. All are content with (or at least resigned to) their lot in life -- save for housemaid Sarah, whose restlessness is exacerbated by the unexpected arrival of mysterious new manservant, James Smith. Providing an intimate glimpse into daily life in Regency England, both above and below stairs, this "vivid reimagining" (Publishers Weekly) of a classic is a must-read for Austen fans, but will also captivate readers who enjoy well-drawn characters, richly detailed settings, and moving love stories.
