This one is strictly for fans of Jane Austen–a sequel to Mansfield Park that follows the adventures of the disgraced Maria Bertram.

Explore what might have happened to Maria Bertram after her disgrace and exile at the end of Jane Austen’s novel Mansfield Park, published 200 years ago in May. In this novel, Maria goes to the Caribbean island of Barbados. Maria unearths a family secret there that challenges moral judgements made in the context of slavery.
