Hannah Gordon, Amanda Root and Michael Williams star in this sparkling BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.Fanny Price, the timid eldest daughter of a large and struggling family, is nine years old when she is sent to live with her aunt and uncle, Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, at Mansfield Park. At first homesick, Fanny is no match for three of her witty and vivacious cousins, but finds friendship with the fourth, Edmund.In time Fanny's steadfast and purposeful character makes her an indispensable member of the household. But when Sir Thomas is away on a lengthy journey to the West Indies the Bertram children indulge in 'theatricals' and romantic flirtations which ultimately lead them into a web of intrigue. Fanny, by now in love with Edmund, is dismayed to find him enraptured by their cousin Mary Crawford, whilst Mary's brother Henry has himself become besotted with Fanny, whose hopes of finding love with Edmund seem ever more unlikely.

The dramatisation is well done with Hannah Gordon, I suppose, playing Jane Austen and providing the narration. Nearly three hours long and well worth the £2.99 I paid for it. A production I can listen to many more times.
