Fanny Price is the poor relation, taken from her home in Portsmouth to live with the wealthy Bertrams at Mansfield Park. From afar she falls in love with her cousin Edmund, but when the Crawfords move into the neighbourhood she finds herself unwittingly competing with a dazzling, clever and lovely rival.
Catherine Morland?s chances of marriage to wealthy Henry Tilney are adversely affected by false reports on her family?s wealth. The novel ridicules the Gothic tales of romance and terror popular at the time.
