Too poor to care for all their children, the Price family sends ten-year-old Fanny to live with wealthy relatives at their estate, Mansfield Park. Fanny is painfully shy and spends her childhood struggling to fit in with her Bertram cousins, being constantly reminded of her lower social status. Then Henry Crawford and his sister Mary move in next door. They are fashionable and rich, but scheming. Fanny, now a teenager, falls for her cousin Edmund, but he seems to only have eyes for Mary Crawford. Meanwhile, Fanny is pursued by the charming but amoral Henry Crawford. With all these romantic entanglements, will Fanny ever feel truly at home at Mansfield Park? English author Jane Austen examines the influence of nature vs. nurture in this unabridged version of her social satire, first published in 1814.
