Mansfield Park is the study of three families: the Bertrams, the Crawfords, and the Prices. At its center is Fanny Price, a poor relation adopted into the family of her rich uncle Thomas Bertram, and condescendingly treated. Only her cousin Edmund, a young clergyman, appreciates her fine qualities, and Fanny falls in love with him. Unfortunately, he is drawn to the shallow and worldly Mary Crawford. Fanny's quiet passivity, steadfast loyalty, and natural goodness are matched against the wit and brilliance of her lovely rival. Jane Austen skillfully uses her characters' emotional relationships to explore the social and moral values by which they attempt to order their lives

The Watsons by Jane Austen( Book )
122 editions published between 1871 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,474 libraries worldwide
"This fragment of a novel was written by Jane Austin about 1803-1805, but was not published until 1871, as part of James Edward Austen-Leigh's Memoir (Jane Austen had left it untitled; the title "The Watsons" was provided by Austen-Leigh). It describes Emma Watson's return, after a long absence, to her family, who are on the lower financial fringes of the "genteel". It is not clear why Jane Austen did not continue this fragment - perhaps because of her father's death; or because she was discouraged by the fact that after she succeed in selling her first novel (Susan, an earlier version of Northanger Abbey, for a nominal sum in 1803), the publisher decided not to publish after all, and sat on the manuscript; or because she did not want to sustain the tone of almost "painful realism" (according to Jenkins) with which she had begun."
