This review is from: Longbourn (Paperback)
I did enjoy this book. I was put off sequels almost for life after reading that dire offering Pemberley. However, this book was extremely well written and captured the sense of the times very well. The contrast between the lives of the upstairs people and downstairs was very well done I thought. Harsh red hands of maids toiling from dawn to dark hauling coal and wood and the upstairs people with their laces, bonnets and pommades. And the servants had their own story which was quite credible.
