Jane Austen: Mansfield Park

From tomorrow, Jane Austen January moves onto:

Mansfield Park (1814)

Fanny Price has always felt like an outsider. She was adopted by her uncle as a child and now lives in luxury at Mansfield Park, but doesn’t fit in somehow. Shyer and much sweeter than the glamorous cousins she has grown up with, she feels she can only stand by and watch from the sidelines, never living her own life.

Fanny won’t admit - even to herself - who she really loves. Her uncle conducts the search for a husband as if it were a business deal, and when the time for Fanny to marry comes, will she be handed over on a handshake? Or will she have the strength to make her own mistakes - and finally find true happiness?

which will run until February 11th.

Please be aware comments on this post will contain spoilers for those who wish to discuss during their reading. If you don't want the book to be spoiled, wait until you've read it to comment and discuss! And remember to still discuss Sense & Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice.

Happy reading! :D


  1. OK, I've now read this - anyone else?

  2. I've read it! And all I can say about it, is this:

    I wish I was Lady Bertram! What a wonderfully easy life she has! That's all I personally want out of life - to loll about on a sofa while petting my pug!! Oh, what bliss!!

  3. LOL! :0) Anyone else, any thoughts?
