Mansfield Park is the only novel in which Jane Austen gives her readers a glimpse of an alternative ending and reveals that Fanny's fate might have been very different. Fanny, A Mansfield Park Story answers that possibility and further explores the lives and choices of Austen's fascinating and delightful cast of characters.
Fanny, a poor relation living with her wealthy aunt and uncle, must find her place and hold her own in a family that is still learning to value her. No longer guided in everything by her cousin, Edmund, Fanny must judge for herself, act with initiative, and navigate the attentions of potential suitors.
Fanny, A Mansfield Park Story continues in Austen's tradition of social satire, clever dialogue, and witty observations combined with Amelia Marie Logan's own style and charm. If the rushed ending of Mansfield Park left you unsatisfied, you will love Fanny, A Mansfield Park Story.

"You will just have to read this fabulous reimagining of Mansfield Park." Vikki Silverman - Read Full Review
"Fanny, A Mansfield Park story was carefully crafted to give due homage to the original. The description, dialogue, ongoing plot, and characters themselves were barely altered. The author showed a what-if that varied greatly from the original in the end, but only because she altered a few pivotal circumstances. People were as they ever were including Fanny Price. ... All in all, this was a lovely, slowly paced out story of growth, change, and ongoing story for the Mansfield Park characters that did justice to the original. Definitely worth the read."

The Making of Jane Austen by Devoney LooserI am currently reading this book. However, I saw Devoney give a talk on the topic of her book, and introducing further subject matter to be incorporated into her next, at the Jane Austen Fest in Mt. Dora, Florida, in February of 2020. She provided a lot of interesting and fascinating information related to the development of Austen into the pop culture icon she is today in an engaging and entertaining presentation. What Matters in Jane Austen by John MullanThis is an insightful read about Austen and her genius and explains just how groundbreaking Austen's work was. Professor Mullan is also an engaging public speaker; I've enjoyed watching several online videos of him discussing Austen. The Real Jane Austen, A Life in Small Things by Paula ByrneThis is a terrific read that informs and enlightens us about Austen through things in her life. This book contains several photographs of the items discussed.
