Longbourn

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.

So I’m totally into retellings, and I happened to come across this on some list of retellings of classic novels (and I’m sorry, I can’t find the list again) just this past week and added it to my to-reads list. Then lo and behold, I came across this whilst browsing in one of my local bookshops.

Serendipity.
