This engrossing novel by Jane Austen is famous for its realism and moralistic tone. It introduces us to Fanny Price, a girl from an impoverished family, who is sent to live with her aristocratic uncle and aunt. The discriminating attitude of the patricians with the underprivileged and their licentious behaviour has been masterfully highlighted in this magnum-opus. Captivating!
