Ten-year-old Fanny Price is adopted by her wealthy uncle, Sir Thomas Bertram, and is brought up alongside, rather than with, his own four children. She soon learns her place in the hierarchy of Mansfield Park, and is firmly kept there by her spiteful and interfering Aunt Norris, who is one of Jane Austen’s most memorable creations. While Sir Thomas is away attending to his business interests in Antigua, the arrival of the sophisticated Mary and Henry Crawford becomes the catalyst for change. Soon, amateur theatricals turn into a real-life drama that shakes the family to its foundations. Throughout it all, Fanny’s high moral principles remain as firm as a rock. When the dust has settled, those who remain standing realize that Fanny means more to them than they – or she –had ever expected.If you have ever expected Jane Austen’s novels to be difficult to read, the Line Clear Edition is the one for you. Here is Jane Austen’s classic novel in Jane Austen’s words, made approachable by clear type and a clear layout, modern spelling and modern typography. The innovative chapter titles and contents list, derived from the text, will guide the familiar reader back to favourite passages without revealing the plot to a new reader.The cover image is taken from a Cassini Old Series map, using mapping first published by the Ordnance Survey between 1833 and 1835 (only a few years after Jane Austen’s death), and is reproduced by kind permission of Cassini Publishing Ltd. The front cover is centred on Northampton, it being implied in the novel that Mansfield Park lies only four or five miles north of there. 3
