(From the publisher):
Only Joan Aiken possesses the talent, style, and requisite temerity to attempt the ambitious task of writing a sequel to Jane Austen's Mansfield Park
. She longed to delve deeper into the story which has fascinated her since childhood. MANSFIELD REVISITED is the delightful result.
The original novel by Jane Austen dealt, in the author's inimitable style, with romance, misrepresentation, and misunderstanding. Undertaking an extraordinary literary endeavor, Joan Aiken brilliantly reconstructs this fascinating world of manners and principles, of status and social sham, of stealth and love, and purity of heart.
MANSFIELD REVISTIED is the story of Susan Price, Fanny's younger sister, who, through her own natural spirit, intelligence, and kindness, is able to overcome the obstacles class and convention impose upon her. Joan Aiken unfolds her tale, full of wit and intrigue, with all the delicacy, charm, and stylistic grace her readers have come to expect and eagerly anticipate. Now, everyone who, like Joan Aiken, has ever wondered what the future held for Jane Austen's beloved charaters is invited back to Mansfield for a rich and absorbing visit.
