Review: Mansfield Park

Jane Austen’s novels are comfort reads for me because regardless of all the adversity, the protagonists always get the happy ending they so much deserve. Mansfield Park is the sixth novel I read by her, and it did not disappoint.  Here’s the GoodReads description: Taken from the poverty of her parents’ home in Portsmouth, FannyContinue reading “Review: Mansfield Park”
