Women Writers Reading Challenge #20: Longbourn by Jo Baker

IMG_2251

I haven’t read much in the way of Jane Austen adaptations, but I was really excited to read Jo Baker’s book because it had such an interesting point of view–that of the servants in the Bennet’s household. There was plenty of drama to appreciate, lots of intrigue, some feel-good moments, and plenty of food descriptions (you have a lovely post to look forward to tomorrow).

I really enjoyed this book and its new perspective on this well known story. The writing was engaging and the characters were well-defined and interesting. If you’re a fan of Austen’s work, Upstairs Downstairs, or Downton Abbey, I think you’ll definitely enjoy this one.
