Synopsis

Mansfield Revisited by Joan Aiken

After the sad demise of Sir Thomas, Edmund Bertram and his new wife Fanny must sail to the West Indies in order to oversee the family's affairs. Back at Mansfield Park, Fanny's younger sister Susan is left at the helm. The household faces disarray, and she must guide the estate through gossip and grievances. Yet the news of Henry and Mary Crawford's return to Mansfield heralds the greatest storm yet. With the arrival of this dangerous pair, romance is once more in the air, and hearts are set to be broken...Featuring a cast of characters from Jane Austen's classic, including Susan Price, Thomas Bertram, Lady Bertram, Julia Yates and, of course, the infamous Crawford siblings.

Reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Joan Aiken gives the story a fresh twist with a plausible explanation for Henry Crawford's supposed perfidy in Mansfield Park which allows him to become a possible suitor for Susan. And the introduction of several lively new characters ensures that Mansfield Revisited is a stand-alone story. Aiken also captures Jane Austen's tone excellently
