Mansfield Park Revisited

A Jane Austen Entertainment

By Joan Aiken, 1924-2004

In Aiken's sequel to Jane Austen's complex and fascinating novel, after heroine Fanny Price marries Edmund Bertram, they depart for the Caribbean, and Fanny's younger sister Susan moves to Mansfield Park as Lady Bertram's new companion. Surrounded by the familiar cast of characters from Jane Austen's original, and joined by a few charming new characters introduced by the author, Susan finds herself entangled in romance, surprise, scandal, and redemption.

Aiken's diverting tale gives the reader interesting speculation on how the Crawfords, whose winning personalities were marred by an amoral upbringing, might have turned out, and Jane Austen's morality tale takes new directions with an unexpected and somewhat controversial ending.

"A lovely read-and you don't have to have read Mansfield Park to enjoy it."-Woman's Own

"Her sense of time and place is impeccable."-Publishers Weekly

"An excellent sequel...remarkably effective and very funny."
