This book tells the servant’s side of events to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. It has some scandal and twists that I really enjoyed.
The story centres around Sarah, a house maid that was taken in from the workhouse as a child by Mrs Hill (cook and housekeeper of the Bennet Family). Her days are spent in hard slog washing, cleaning, heavy lifting and all around drudgery a very stark contrast to the Bennet sisters who practiced their needlework or as in Mary’s case reading Fordyce's sermons.
