Fanny Price is a young girl from a large and relatively poor family, who is taken from them at age 10 to be raised by her rich uncle and aunt, Sir Thomas, a baronet, and Lady Bertram, of Mansfield Park. She had previously lived with her own parents, Lieut. Price and his wife, Frances (Fanny), Lady Bertram's sister. She is the second child and eldest daughter, with seven siblings born after her. She has a firm attachment to her older brother, William, who at the age of 12 has followed his father into the navy. With so many mouths to feed on a limited income, Fanny's mother is grateful for the opportunity to send Fanny away to live with her fine relatives.

Man, this is going to be a battle of hearts. A triangle I guess.
Àfter äll her talk abt taking in the girl she is now vehemently denying all responsibility
It's so weird how fixated she is in making sure the little girl is classified as lesser than her own daughters. I guess this goes back to her love of directing others.
Nice! Read my New Novel on Trump, Brazil, Relationships, Technologies, Longevity, Human Nature.
It's so sad that fanny doesn't get to see her brother or be with her family

Mrs. Norris should keep her mouth shut (but then who would we have to dislike in this story)?
