This title is a Joan's Pick.

Mr and Mrs Bennet - and their five daughters - need no introduction to readers of Pride and Prejudice. Their domestic staff, however, rated only passing mentions in that ... original story, which is rectified here in a version all their own - and is a truly special book.

Mrs Hill runs the household, and oversees the staff. When a new footman, James Smith, mysteriously arrives and captures Sarah's heart, Mrs Hill's radar goes on full alert - but he makes himself more than useful and looks as though he's there to stay.

The author cleverly wraps the servants' story around actual events from the original, but this book stands on its own merits. There are clothes to be washed and parties to be readied for, as Mrs Bennet desperately attempts to secure suitable marriages for her girls. But below stairs things become increasingly interesting, and the servants' stories are ones which will engage and touch you, in ways the upstairs crowd never could.

This book is wonderful. Joan.
