A Contrary Wind: a variation on Mansfield Park

By Lona Manning

Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


Fanny Price, niece to Sir Thomas Bertram of Mansfield Park, is an intelligent but timid girl from a poor family, who is grateful for the advantages of education and breeding conferred upon her as result of growing up with her wealthier cousins. But the cruelty of her Aunt Norris, together with a broken heart, compel Fanny to run away from Mansfield Park and find employment as a governess. Far away from everything she ever knew and the one man she loves, will Fanny grow in fortitude and independence? Will a new suitor help her to forget? Or will a reckless decision threaten to destroy her own life and the lives of those she holds most dear? This variation of Jane Austen's novel includes all the familiar characters from Mansfield Park, as well as some new acquaintances. Note to readers: There are some mature scenes and situations not suitable for all readers.

Hello. I was born in South Korea where my parents were teaching missionaries shortly after the Korean War. I grew up in Vancouver, Canada. My husband Ross and I raised two sons. Over the years, I've been a home care aide, legal secretary, political speech writer, office manager, and vocational instructor. Mainly I worked in non-profit administration until suddenly deciding (in my late 50’s) to get an ESL teaching certificate. My husband and I now divide our time between China (where I teach) and the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. I have authored several lengthy non-fiction pieces about notable American crimes, such as: the murder of Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the Lindbergh kidnapping, the 1920 Wall Street bombing, the satanic ritual moral panic of the 90's, and the Rubin Hurricane Carter case. My crime articles can be found online at www.crimemagazine.com. Last spring, after a long silence, my Muse showed up and started writing "A Contrary Wind" in my head.
