Published in 1814, this nuanced examination of the social hierarchy of Jane Austen’s day contains more than enough wit, charm, and human drama to enchant readers of any era  Born into a poor family, Fanny Price is raised amid the daunting splendor of Mansfield Park by her rich uncle, Sir Thomas Bertram. Treated as an inferior by most of the family, Fanny forms a close attachment to her cousin Edmund, the only person to show her kindness. With the departure of her uncle to the West Indies and the arrival from London of the fashionable Henry and Mary Crawford, flirtation and romantic intrigue abound. As Fanny becomes increasingly uncomfortable with the conduct of her companions, she finds herself isolated and forced to face the conflict between her sense of integrity and social expectation. This edition includes pictures and an extensive section about the author's life and works.
