When Fanny Price is sent to live with her wealthy relations at Mansfield Park she seems shy and withdrawn beside her witty and vivacious cousins. But Fanny's steadfast and purposeful character makes her an indispensable part of the household. As the others become entangled in a maze of flirtation and intrigue, it is only Fanny whose deep but secret love for Edmund Bertram remains true despite his fascination with her brilliant but frivolous cousin Mary. "Frances Barber offers a sterling performance, bringing life and sparkle to each character....Barber convincingly shifts from lord of the manor to sniveling servitude at the change of a sentence. And her narrative passages transparently tie the whole family together into one beautiful package." ?AudioFile

About the Author

Jane Austen is one of the most important English novelists to emerge in the 18th Century. Her brilliant, satirical, and elegant novels have transcended time and earned her a place among the greatest literary figures that ever lived. Born to a clergyman in 1775, Ms. Austen's writing career began at the tender age of 14, when she completed her first novel, Love and Friendship. She would go on to thrill the world with her romantic literary tales ever after.
