A meek frail heroine decides enough is enough as events back at Mansfield Park take shocking turns due to the machinations of others A stunning colorful and dramatic variation on Jane Austen's Mansfield Park that was emotional thoughtful and oft times evocative as it took the characters on a very different journey when Fanny Price asks what if she doesn't have to stay and put up with being downtrodden and dependent and also what if the fates send a contrary wind to keep Sir Thomas at sea long enough not to prevent the outcome of the Mansfield theatricals What indeedA Contrary Wind is a uniue variation story because it tackles a book that for one gets few variations written about it and is also generally the least popular of Jane Austen's novels The themes of the book and the characters can chafe on modern readers I for one have never been inclined to dislike the story and was plenty excited when I saw A Contrary Wind released even though my late reading of the book may suggest differently I was only a few pages in when I knew that my early excitement was going to pale against my actual feelings while reading the book I didn't want to stop reading The variations began right away since the book had a uick intro and then dove into the place in the original story after most of the characters are introduced and the spicy Lover's Vows play has been in full swing at Mansfield The author was attentive to writing style historical background and infusing authentic historical elements so though the story took a different path and some of the characters were exaggerated versions it smacked of Austen and Regency era I appreciated the way the author grappled with the plantation and slavery issue right out in the open and also addressed the character flaws in all of them the same way Some characters faced their crises and grew while others didn't The author didn't paint a rosy romantic story but rather one of likely possibility dominated by cause and effect from choices yet there were surprises of the unexpected too There is a lot of movement as several characters get to narrate from their point of view and this helped the reader know their motives and personalities betterFanny is at the heart of it all and of a catalyst than she ever dreamed she could be or that others could either It was interesting to explore what would happen among the denizens of Mansfield and it's close relations when the two most steadying influences were absent Sir Thomas and Fanny and the others could run unchecked Fanny starts off as a staunch and over sensitive person who learns to know herself and how she was as flawed as the rest even if her excesses went in a less destructive vein I loved seeing her experience something new and be influenced by new people to find balance and how strong she really can be While I thought the Crawfords were uite vile I found the story bracing and colorful with them working their wiles on the others I was startled by what comes for Tom's and even Julia's characters in the end but not displeased William Price was a ray or shining light as a heroic and sunny tempered sailor Like most variations what is varied in the characters is as intriguing as what is done with the plotI'm glad I knew going in that the resolve was long and far off because it ended somewhat open ended I definitely wish to pursue these characters even the ones bent on greed and their own disastrous path A less dense and dramatic version of the original that I think will find vast appeal for those who love flawed characters and some gothic in their historical romance or fiction plots
