Harmony, Repose & Rapture: A Closer Look at Jane Austen's Mansfield Park : Margaret Norwich"
"In this her least read novel Jane Austen rewards us with a subtle examination of society and moral integrity in the story of Fanny Price, her displaced, shy and timid heroine who is nevertheless clever, kind, romantic and in possession not of a great fortune but a true conscience. Mansfield Park is perhaps Jane Austen's darkest, most worldly and most profound novel, well-worth revisiting or discovering for the first time: please join us!"
