FREE DOWNLOAD ß Henry and Fanny One of the longest running debates about Jane Austen’s work has been the problematical ending of MANSFIELD PARK Sherwood Smith feels that part of the problem is that the narrative stops abruptly in Book Three Chapter XVII Here the. 45 stars Note Spoilers for Mansfield Park Does Edmund seem as dull as dishwater as a romantic hero Was his relationship with Fanny just hero worship for her and settling for him Are Henry and Mary Crawford not as irredeemable to you as Jane Austen felt they were If those uestions have ever run through your mind you should give Sherwood Smith s Henry and Fanny a read Henry and Fanny begins a few chapters from the end of MP with Henry Crawford on his way to a party at Fanny s cousin Maria s home As in MP she gives him the cold shoulder he pursues she entices him and he runs away realizing that he s not really attracted to her and it would be a stupid thing to fall into an affair with her Maria pursues him and despite the fact that nothing actually happens between them in this version of the story there s still a scandal Henry takes off deciding to buy a yacht to help the war effort by carrying secret dispatchesMeanwhile back at Mansfield Park Fanny gradually comes to the realization that the brotherly kind of love Edmund has for her isn t good enough for her and so she gently discourages him from proposing to her In fact Fanny subtly encourages Mary Crawford to give it another try with Edmund and Mary realizing that a simpler life with Edmund will make her happier than the glittering life in London society decides to take her up on it Will Edmund be willing to give her another chanceI read Mansfield Park right before I started this alternative ending novella and I had done uite a lot of critical reading to prepare myself for a book club discussion of MP because I was in charge of leading the discussion Because of that study I was fairly convinced by Jane Austen s approach to the various romantic relationships in MP from a literary and realistic point of view so I started out a little skeptical here Also Sherwood s narrative voice was different enough from Jane Austen s that it took me a while to slip into the story and even longer to buy into the underlying premise But in the end this alternative version had me if not entirely logically convinced at least very happy and romantically satisfied I have to say this story is a lot heartwarming than the real ending Sherwood Smith doesn t rush the plot here it takes place over a couple of years and that pacing helped it feel natural and believable By the end the writing was beginning to feel very much like Austen s And the idea of Mrs Norris being sent down to Portsmouth to stay with Fanny s family and taking charge there and whipping them into shape was genius and absolutely delightfulI enthusiastically recommend this for Austen fans unless you re a committed purist or actually like the way Mansfield Park endsInitial comments Now I just have to read Mansfield Park again before I read Sherwood Smith s alternate ending here I have a feeling I ll like it better than the actual ending

FREE DOWNLOAD ß Henry and Fanny Narrator takes the stage to issue a long summary of what happened after all those brilliant pages of immersing readers in the minds of the characters and their world When she read James Austen Leigh’s memoir about his famous aunt i. Sherwood Smith is one of those people who knows a lot about a lot of stuff Her tastes are wide and she has expert levels of knowledge that allow her to write anything from military high fantasy INDA to Regency romances Every single thing I ve read by her has been nothing short of completely engrossing and fabulousI ran onto a few of these short Jane Austen odes as you might call them and decided that I d see what they were about I usually avoid all the extra Jane Austen hangers on like the plague Darcy s Christmas or Mr Darcy Has uintuplets but as stated above Ms Smith has built up credit with me as a reader and I figured I owed it a chanceAnd here s the thing Mansfield Park is my FAVORITE Austen novel FAVORITE I know that s an unpopular opinion but I feel like it s her most deftly written the most fulfilling story the most scandalous and satisfying for the villains of the pieces and just GOOD Another reason for me to be skeptical of a rewriteBut here s another thing The first time I read MP I was completely wooed by Henry Crawford s attempts to woo Fanny He was genuine He was different He was actually in love I really believed it which made the rug pull at the end even fun for me actually It was as if Jane said Now now You know there s always a Wrong Man and a Right Man How could you think I d let her end up with the Wrong Man and then I said Oh Jane you trickster That was a good one Tons of fun But a little bit wistful because yeah Henry was better at the love thing than Edmund ever was Enter this alternate ending Ms Smith s forward to this little piece of delightful fan fiction explains her reasoning perfectly and uite soundly In her opinion Henry and Maria shouldn t have happened Henry wasn t so stupid and impulsive Ms Austen was rather stubborn in choosing to end the book the way she did after Cassandra begged her to change it and Edmund was still wildly in love with Mary Crawford to be happy with Fanny Fanny s attachment to Edmund was simply the attachment of a school girl to someone who was her only defender in a house full of horrible people She d eventually grow out of that too Ok fine I was willing to biteAnd dang it if it wasn t crazy satisfying It feels sacrilegious to accept an alternate ending to a Jane Austen novel not to mention my FAVORITE Jane Austen novel But I think I have Henry got his second chance and I completely loved him some I recommend this read if you can get over any superstitions you may have about letting an Austen heroine end up in the arms of the Wrong Man But if he s Wrong oh yes I am going there then I don t want to be right
