When Fanny Price comes to live with her well-to-do cousins at Mansfeild Park, The modest, retiring ten-year-old is treated condescendingly by members of the Bartram family. A poor relation, dependent on the goodwill of her aristocratic relatives, the sweet, sensitive, and frquently ignored Fanny nevertheless eventually develops into the ethical center of the family. Trouble begins with the arrival of Mary Crawford and her brother Henry. Their sophisticated London tastes, and penchant for flirtatious activities, shatter the tranquility of the Bartram home, creating social havoc and precipiating a crisis in the family. But Fanny always clever, gracful, and pleasant-provides a bulwark of moral strength, eventually winning her family's complete acceptance (and the love of her cousin Edmund).

Mansfield Park is a novel about town and country, surface dazzle and lasting values. Fanny Price, a poor relation, is brought up at the wealthy Bertrams' country house and fallls for Edmund, the younger son. Their lives are disrupted, however, by the arrival of the worldly Mary Crawford and her brother Henry. With her usual psychological insight and attention to detail, Jane Austen paints an irresistibly lifelike portrait of shifting values and split loyalties.
Illustrated by Hugh Thomson, with an Afterword by Nigel Cliff.
