Customer Reviews

Patricia from Durham ,

Longbourn

The "below stairs" staff who serve the Bennets and their daughters add a dimension to their story as told in "Pride and Prejudice". The Longbourn staff are very real,their daily lives interwoven with the Bennets and I would recommend all who enjoy P&P to read Longbourn in order to complete the story. I had to keep reading! PF.

Pakipsy ,

Enthralling

It kept me awake thinking about the next page..insight into Mary’s character I would have never have thought of..so very ‘Austen esq’..loved it..would like a bit more romance as it’s really only at the end..but other than that, can’t recommend it enough.
