About this book
Published to mark the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's perennially popular novel, this takes "Pride & Prejudice" below stairs to tell an enthralling story of the romance, intrigue and drama among the servants of the Bennet household. Created with the utmost respect for the original novel.
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.
