Mansfield Park, by Jane Austen.
At 10, Fanny Price, a poor relation, goes to live at Mansfield Park, the estate of her aunts husband, Sir Thomas. Clever, studious, and a writer with an ironic imagination and fine moral compass, she becomes especially close to Edmund, Thomass younger son. Fanny is soon possessed of beauty as well as a keen mind and comes to the attention of a neighbor, Henry Crawford. Thomas promotes this match, but to his displeasure, Fanny has a mind of her own, asking Henry to prove himself worthy. As Edmund courts Henrys sister and as light shines on the link between Thomass fortunes and New World slavery, Fanny must assess Henrys character and assert her heart as well as her wit.
