Product description


A New York Times Notable Book
“An elegantly executed twist on the celebrated story…. It has as much suspense, drama and romance as any Austen fan could hope for, coupled with a smart social commentary on the injustices of poverty and class in 19th-century England.”
Longbourn is delightfully audacious; after all, Jane Austen is a very tough act to follow…. An absorbing and moving story about the servants at Longbourn…. A work that’s both original and charming, even gripping, in its own right.”
 —The New York Times Book Review
“Engrossing Austen homage…. Austen’s novel serves as a backdrop for the compelling stories of the characters who keep the Bennet household running.”
 —Booklist (starred review)
“A must-read for fans of Austen, this literary tribute also stands on its own as a captivating love story.”
 —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Densely plotted and achingly romantic. This exquisitely reimagined Pride and Prejudice will appeal to Austen devotees and to anyone who finds the goings-on below the stairs to be at least as compelling as the ones above. Highly recommended.”
 —Library Journal (starred review)

“Captivating and delicious. A brilliantly imagined and lovingly told story about the wide world beyond the margins and outside the parlors of Pride and Prejudice.”
Maggie Shipstead, author of Seating Arrangements

“Sure to be welcomed as a delicious concoction of Pride and Prejudice meets Downton Abbey. . . . Yet Longbourn stands on its own as an engrossing, intelligent historical novel whose resonances with Pride and Prejudice go much further than its brilliantly plausible presentation of downstairs life. . . . Baker is a real and very fine writer.”
—James Collins, author of the bestselling novel Beginner’s Greek

“An irresistible retake on Pride and Prejudice alters the familiar perspective by foregrounding a different version of events—the servants’.... Sequels and prequels rarely add to the original, but Baker’s simple yet inspired reimagining does. It has bestseller stamped all over it.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Inspired … a richly imagined story [that] recasts Austen's novel in a startlingly fresh light... an intoxicating love story but, also like Austen, the pleasure of her novel lies in its wit and fierce intelligence. The result is a triumph: a splendid tribute to Austen's original but, more importantly, a joy in its own right, a novel that contrives both to provoke the intellect and, ultimately, to stop the heart.”
The Guardian (UK)
