    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.

    MP says: "Extraordinary book (even w/o Pride & Prejudice)"
    "A beautiful well-written piece of fiction"

    Where does Longbourn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the best audiobook I have listened to. The narration is superb. So much so that you feel like you are experiencing the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Sarah. She has led a hard life and very much dreams of a better one. I can feel her longing.


    Which character – as performed by Emma Fielding – was your favorite?

    Sarah and Mrs. Hill as performed by Emma Fielding are my favorites.


    If you could rename Longbourn, what would you call it?

    I would rename Longbourn "In Pursuit of Dreams" or "The Longing"


    Any additional comments?

    An unbelievably well-written book . The prose will blow you away. It will captivate you and take you into its spell and not let you go until the very last word.
