Michelle Styles. What if Fanny Price finally had a enough of her cruel and domineering Aunt Norris and decided to sneak away in the early morning mist? Manning has taken Jane Austen's timid and meek Fanny Price and set her on a course of self-discovery that will test her to her very soul. This is a Fanny I now admire for it is a gradual metamorphosis. Not one where she becomes something she is not. For she is still in essentials, Fanny. As for Edmund Bertram, he is blinded by his infatuation with Mary Crawford and his own arrogance. His journey is just as difficult and one that humbles him completely.
But let us not forget the protagonists, Henry and Mary Crawford. They are brilliant in their 'arts and allurements', their deceptions are subtle and their selfishness knows no bounds.
I literally wanted to throttle them both for the havoc they wreaked. Do they get their comeuppance? You will have to read this amazing rendering to find out!
There are new and delightful characters that you will meet and some you will come to love Butters and Mr. Gibson to name a few. There are references to other characters from Ms. Austen's other works that are sprinkled throughout. Where Jane Austen only slightly references the slave trade, Ms. Manning has used this as a strong plot point. It is breathtaking in it's scope, and I look forward to reading the sequel, "A Marriage of Attachment" next!
I won this book in a giveaway with no expectation of a review. While Sir Thomas Bertram is visiting his plantations in the West Indies his family back at Mansfield Park have decided to put on a play. Fanny Price continually faced with the cruel remarks of her Aunt Norris and her unrequited love of Edmund Bertram secretly leaves to become a governess. So the future of all the players are changed. A very enjoyable well written variation of Mansfield Park.
View 2 comments. A very clever MP variation. For mature readers The afterword makes mention of the possibility of a sequel Several surprising moments in the book. I hope the author writes more very soon. I won a copy of the book at Austenesque Reviews in exchange for a fair and honest review. Thank you to A very clever MP variation. Thank you to the author as well. In this reimagining of Jane Austen's "Mansfield Park", Sir Thomas Bertram does not arrive home in time to call an early stop to play rehearsals.
