“Her own thoughts and reflections were habitually her best companions.” Mansfield Park, 1814
And so we learn about the quiet, private Fanny Price our heroine in "Mansfield Park". While all around her are falling in and out of love Fanny remains constant and much put-upon by her newly adopted family and surroundings. A tale involving adultery is not a typical Jane Austen theme, and it throws up quite unexpected results. Fanny has to remain true to herself but struggles to cope with the results, often re-examining her own feelings while enduring the cheerful amorality, old-fashioned indifference and priggish disapproval of those around her.
