#StackBounty: #line-breaking #indentation #lettrine lettrines, explicit linebreaks and hanging indents

Bounty: 150

I need to combine lettrines, explicit linebreaks and hanging indents for whatever chunk of text ends up being longer than one line.
When using newline the lettrines work, but everything apart from the first line will be set hanging. Whith par the hanging indent is correct but not for the lines affected by the lettrine:

documentclass[11pt,a5paper]{article}

usepackage[showframe]{geometry}


usepackage{lettrine}

%newcommand{lb}{newline}
newcommand{lb}{par}

setlength{leftskip}{5cm}
setlength{parindent}{-5cm}



begin{document}

A pretty short line of regular textlb
A pretty short line of regular textlb
A pretty short line of regular textlb
lettrine{A}{} pretty short line with lettrinelb
A pretty short line with lettrinelb
A pretty short line with lettrinelb
A pretty short line of regular textlb
A pretty short line of regular text but way too long to be on one line, so we need to break itlb
A pretty short line of regular textlb

end{document}

While I’d need the result to have lettrines and text to align and long lines to to be indented negatively as shown here:
