"We do not look in great cities for our best morality." Mansfield Park, 1814
Adultery is not a typical Jane Austen theme, but when it disturbs the relatively peaceful household at Mansfield Park, it has quite unexpected results. Our put-upon heroine Fanny Price has to struggle to cope with the results, re-examining her own feelings while enduring the indifference and priggish disapproval of those around her.
