The Frozen Sea

Books to the ceiling, books to the sky, my pile of books is a mile high. How I love them! How I need them! I'll have a long beard by the time I read them!

Longbourn by Jo Baker

This book had a really interesting premise and was a quick read. I did however find myself deeply disappointed by Mr Bennet and Elizabeth - the different perspective shows them as horribly selfish people, and I suppose from a servant's point of view in Regency England they would have been.

 

 

 

I also found the swapping from Sarah to James to Mrs Hill's viewpoints rather disjointed. The romance was sweet, although the ending was a bit unsatisfying. Definitely not the lovely escapism that Pride and Prejudice was, but interesting nonetheless.
