At the age of ten, shy, vulnerable Funny Price leaves behind her impoverished family in Portsmouth to go and live with her relatives at Mansfield Park.

Growing up with her cousins Tom, Edmund, Maria and Julia, she is aware that she is different from then and that place in society cannot be taken for granted, although she is not treated unkindly. A dashing couple from London, Mary Crowford and her brother Henry, enter this stable, rural world. They succeed in dazzling everyone at Mansfield Park, except for Fanny, who sees through their shallow veneer. Throughout the dramatic events that follow it is she able to bring back some stability to the rupture lives of those around her.
