From its sharply satiric opening sentence, Mansfield Park deals with money and marriage, and how strongly they affect each other. Shy, fragile Fanny Price is the consummate “poor relation.” Sent to live with her wealthy uncle Thomas, she clashes with his spoiled, selfish daughters and falls in love with his son. Their lives are further complicated by the arrival of a pair of witty, sophisticated Londoners, whose flair for flirtation collides with the quiet, conservative country ways of Mansfield Park.

Written several years after the early manuscripts that eventually became Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park retains Jane Austen’s familiar compassion and humor but offers a far more complex exploration of moral choices and their emotional consequences.

    " This book - like Northanger Abbey - left me hanging at the end. You are so invested in Fanny's story and life and then the conclusion to her long suffering journey is given scant attention. I want wedding details and Fanny's reaction. Still it is Jane Austen and it was early 1800's and maybe those things just weren't talked about - even though everything else was! "

    " Least favorite so far. I was put off by Fanny, she wasn't a strong character. This book dragged a lot and I didn't like who she ended up with. Meh. "

    " Wonderful book--you don't have to look for all the different books because they're all there! The drawings are wonderful and seem to be period-authentic. And it looks good on my shelf! I don't love all the books she wrote, but at least half of them I do. Well worth the investment. "

    " The best romance the world of literature has to offer. Witty, sparkling, endearing, satirical, honest, lovely... "
