The servants at Longbourn estate, only glancingly mentioned in Jane Austen's classic, take center stage in Jo Baker's lively, cunning new novel. Here are the Bennets as we have never known them: seen through the eyes of those scrubbing the floors, cooking the meals, emptying the chamber pots. Our heroine is Sarah, an orphaned housemaid beginning to chafe against the boundaries of her class. When the militia marches into town, a new footman arrives under mysterious circumstances, and Sarah finds herself the object of the attentions of an ambitious young former slave working at neighboring Netherfield Hall, the carefully choreographed world downstairs at Longbourn threatens to be completely, perhaps irrevocably, up-ended. From the stern but soft-hearted housekeeper to the starry-eyed kitchen maid, these new characters come vividly to life in this already beloved world.… (mere)

Really liked it. I love Jane Austen and it's obvious that Jo Baker does too - but she has written a book that stands alone - there's no need to have read or liked P&P. Maybe just short of 4 stars but must have been well researched as nothing jars on historical detail and I thought the characters were really strong. I got a little impatient when the war sequence interrupted the flow but kept up my interest to the end. ( )

Great book for Dowton Abbey orphans. Sarah is an amazing character! ( )
  ladyars | Dec 31, 2020 |
I read this with my sister and it was a fun experience. I did go dashing back to P&P to reacquaint myself with all the characters. A clever device to show the other side of life that we read about so frequently in English Victorian fiction. The end had me pondering for a bit, but good though. ( )

Loved this story. The ending felt a bit rushed but no more than the end of Pride Prejudice does. I liked that the timeline of Longbourn follows P&P's timeline, but with a different focus. It was a also a great look at the servant class of Austen's et al.'s novels. It definitely changes my view of P&P's characters a bit but not in a bad way, more realistic. I mean, Lizzie might be a great and witty character but she isn't going to be best friends with her maid. I also loved that this story humanized the servant classes that appear in novels but are never focused on. ( )
  JustZelma | Dec 20, 2020 |
Probably candy to those who can't get enough of the Pride & Prejudice world, but otherwise the Austen connection is mostly a gimmick or borrowed backbone for another 1800s storyline. Given that a significant chunk in the middle does not happen at Longbourn, it's not just a look at the Bennett's servants but a look at the life of the "lower class" of that time period. A narrow lens look and not a generic story applicable to all the servants of the time. It was okay, but nothing earth-shattering, really. ( )

Like Austen, Baker has written an intoxicating love story but, also like Austen, the pleasure of her novel lies in its wit and fierce intelligence. Longbourn is a profound exploration of injustice, of poverty and dependence, of loyalty and the price of principle; running through the quiet beauty of much of Baker's writing is the unmistakable glint of anger.
 
Jo Baker’s interesting novel focuses on the downstairs life at Longbourn, the house where the Bennets of “Pride and Prejudice” live. The author makes no attempt to imitate Austen’s style, and pays relatively little attention to Austen’s major characters...Jo Baker’s thoroughly researched description of the servants’ toil expands the tiny piece of ivory that Jane Austen worked on by showing how the lives of the middle and upper classes depended on work that’s now hard to imagine...Certainly, of the many literary rethinkings of Austen’s work, “Longbourn” is one of the most engaging and rewarding

 
Baker deploys them to good effect not only for their intrinsic interest but as a moral corrective. She has also fashioned an absorbing and moving story about the servants at Longbourn...If part of Baker’s inspiration could have come from Charlotte Brontë, there’s also an aside straight out of “Les Misérables... But to mention these classics is not to condemn as pastiche a work that’s both original and charming, even gripping, in its own right.
