"Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery. I quit such odious subjects as soon as I can, impatient to restore everybody, not greatly in fault themselves, to tolerable comfort, and to have done with all the rest." Mansfield Park 1814
A very young Fanny Price is sent to live with her wealthier relations where she is treated in such a manner as to constantly remind her of her lower rank. Her cousin Edmund is the only relation who will treat her with friendship and sympathy. Fanny Price is the most vunerable of Jane Austen's heroines as we follow her story from childhood to early adulthood and the pressures of expected courtship.
