Mansfield Park

Mansfield Park

Susan is Fanny’s younger sister, age fourteen, who she reconnects with when she returns to Portsmouth. Susan, although unrefined because of her upbringing, tries to be good, kind, and well-mannered, and Fanny mentors her in proper behavior. When Fanny returns to Mansfield Park after her time in Portsmouth, Susan goes with her, such that she might benefit from a calmer, more structured upbringing.
