"Nobody, i feel, has ever came upon it attainable to love the heroine of Mansfield Park." --Lionel Trilling
In this creative new twist on Mansfield Park, the famously meek Fanny Price--whom Jane Austen's personal mom known as "insipid"--has been completely reworked; she is now a wealthy heiress who's spoiled, condescending, and customarily hated through the county. Mary Crawford, nonetheless, is now nearly as good as Fanny is undesirable, and suffers nice indignities by the hands of her vindictive neighbor. It's in basic terms after Fanny is murdered at the grounds of Mansfield Park that Mary comes into her personal, teaming-up with a thief-taker from London to resolve the crime.
Featuring actual Austen characters--the similar characters, and a similar episodes, yet each one with a brand new twist--MURDER AT MANSFIELD PARK is a brilliantly unique novel that provides Jane Austen lovers an interesting new heroine and tale to learn many times.
