Mansfield Park
Mansfield Park - Jane Austen A few years ago, a friend of mine told me that "Mansfield Park" was her least favourite Jane Austen novel, because she thought Fanny Price an annoying, overly prissy, well-behaved and too timid character. Now that I've finally read it, my conclusion is that I don't share her opinion.
I thought that the story got quite lengthy sometimes, but Fanny was a rather balanced and reasonable character, disposing of a really good sense of judgement, power of observation and knowledge of human nature (as opposed to her spoilt, over-confident and ill-judging cousins).

The dining room, with Jane's writing table tucked away in a corner next to the window.

Jane's bedroom (also the room where most of her family said goodbye to her before she died).

Seeking Mansfield - Kate Watson Seeking Mansfield - Kate Watson

Finley rubbed one of the small circular scars branded into her right shoulder. She was on her computer with Mansfield Theater Youth application pulled up. She felt she was stupid to even submit the application then Oliver her godparent’s son knocked on her door then Oliver started filling out the rest of her application Then his sister Juliette and her boyfriend Raleigh came in Finley’s room. Finley father had been an actor and was dead. Finley lived with her godparents and was grateful for all they had done for her. Oliver’s aunt Nora was forever reminding Finley how much she owed her godparents and what Finley would be doing to pay them back. Almost as if belittling and hurting Finley. Then for the last month Nora had left Finley alone. She didn’t know why unless her Godparents had said something. Be very victim ut for whatever the reason Finley was grateful.

I couldn’t really get into this story it just didn’t keep my attention
