This story is about Fanny Price who is born to a poor family, but is sent to her mother's rich relations to be brought up with her cousins. There she is treated as an inferior by all except her cousin Edmund, whose kindness towards her earns him her steadfast love.
Probably my favorite of Jane Austen's work. The characters are wonderful. The story is complicated, and the suspense is almost relentless.
A true Jane Austen novel
Although a long read, the style and prose of this, yet another, Jane Austen classic, is well worth the time. The characters are wonderful, the story is meaningful. I found myself laughing and crying, shaking my head and feeling my heart swell. This book is an investment, but it truly makes you rethink human character and the power of family. I'm glad I read it.
As good as ever!
