If you like history and historical fiction novels with a hint of romance and a twist at the end this will be a good fit for you.

Disturbing and creepy are the first words that come to mind when I think of this book, and that's exactly why I would recommend this book to everyone. First of all, to teach women that creeps are out there and they need to be careful, but also to experience a story told from a perspective that many don't get to see.Read More

The story of Fanny starts with Mrs. Norris inviting her to live in Mansfield Park, because Fannys' mother just had another baby and with her no good husband her sister (Mrs. Norris) decided to help. But she herself couldn't suppost Fanny, instead she told her brother in law Sr. Thomas to keep her. He and his wife reluctantly agreed to help the girl. They had four of their own children Maria, Julia, Tom and Edmund. Fanny was treated as she was, poor and ignorant. Her cousins Maria and Julia made fun of her and never let her forget that she was below them. But Edmund took her under his wing and protected her. He made sure she was treated equal. That's the beginning, the rest pretty much covers how her life evolved at Mansfield Park, how from a poor young girl she grows up to be a civilized young lady. If your read Pride and Prejudice this might be a disappointment to you, it doesn't have the same suspense, you can pretty much guess the whole story from the beginning.
