Fanny, the heroine in Mansfield Park, is a poor girl who grew up under the care of her wealthy relatives while never being accepted by them as an equal. Fanny is a sensible girl with remarkable moral fortitude and feels out of place in a world of social accomplishments and flirtations. Like all of Austen’s books, Mansfield Park paints a study of character and gives insight into the moral and social values of the time period. This book contains no profanity or taking of God’s name in vain, unlike all of Austen’s other books. On LibriVox.org, I recommend version 2 of the book.
