Taken from the poverty of her parents' home in Portsmouth, Fanny Price is brought up with her rich cousins at Mansfield Park, acutely aware of her humble rank, and with her cousin Edmund Bertram as her sole ally. When her uncle Sir Thomas Birtram travels to Antigua, siblings Mary and Henry Crawford arrive in the neighbourhood, bringing with them the glamour of London life and a reckless taste for flirtation. As her female cousins vie for Henry's attention, and even Edmund falls for Mary's dazzling charms, only Fanny remains doubtful about the Crawfords' influence and finds herself more isolated than ever. Mansfield Park is considered Jane Austen's first mature work and, with its quiet heroine and subtle examination of social position and moral integrity, one of her most profound.
Jane Austen (1775-1817) was extremely modest about her own genius but has become one of English literature's most famous women writers. Austen began writing at a young age, embarking on what is possibly her best-known work, Pride and Prejudice, at the age of 22. She was the author of Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma,Persuasion, Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey. If you enjoyed Mansfield Park, you may like Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South, also available in Penguin Classics.

The book itself is so....beautiful, the cover, the pages, the weight, an absolute pleasure.
The story is about, Love , wealth, society and marriage.
I can't believe the story is still relevant in today's world as it was back then.
The writing is 'wordy ' but wonderful descriptive, a joy to read.
This is my 2nd book from Chiltern Publishing, Pride and Prejudice was my first, both beauties inside and out!!!!
Like all her novels the clever gentle irony is superbly written.
