review 1: What a twist on the original Mansfield Park! I thoroughly enjoyed it. The cast was all present and accounted for, but their flaws and story line all switched places. After reading the original it was interesting to see how Fanny Price's and Maria Bertram's personality foibles were opposite what they were in the original Jane Austen work.

Henry Crawford's true colors were left hidden with glimpses of possible misconduct showing through.

Instead of not taking a whack at it and just saying it was horrible without reading it because of this author's blog (Google "Lynn Shepherd" and "JK Rowling"), I decided to give her a fair shot. By all means, she isn't a bad writer, but she isn't great. This just wasn't my type of book and, in reading it, I feel that she is trying to be someone she is not, if that makes sense. It all seemed a bit forced. Maybe it was just me. less

Started poorly. A tedious read up until about page 160 then it got interesting.
