If Elizabeth Bennet had the washing of her own petticoats, Sarah

often thought, she’d most likely be a sight more careful with

them.

In this irresistibly imagined belowstairs answer to Pride and

Prejudice, the servants take center stage. Sarah, the orphaned

housemaid, spends her days scrubbing the laundry, polishing the

floors, and emptying the chamber pots for the Bennet household. But

there is just as much romance, heartbreak, and intrigue downstairs

at Longbourn as there is upstairs. When a mysterious new footman

arrives, the orderly realm of the servants’ hall threatens to be

completely, perhaps irrevocably, upended.

Jo Baker dares to take us beyond the drawing rooms of Jane Austen’s

classic—into the often overlooked domain of the stern housekeeper

and the starry-eyed kitchen maid, into the gritty daily particulars

faced by the lower classes in Regency England during the Napoleonic

Wars—and, in doing so, creates a vivid, fascinating, fully realized

world that is wholly her own.
