Well written detailed account of life below the Bennet stairs, but not exactly a page turner. Not much has happened so far but an exhausting litany of tasks reminding us that the Bennet girls sweat, bleed and put their pantaloons on one leg at a time. There's a mysterious man it's hard to care much about [yet], some portentous whispering beyond our hearing and the occasional whiff of Jane Austen's story to keep us on track. A bit more joyless than I had hoped.
Will press on.
