Growing up, she is treated as an inferior relation by all but her best friend and cousin Edmund. Quiet, staid, and virtuous Fanny witnesses the stirrings of passion when worldly siblings Henry and Mary Crawford move in next door. Henry toys with the affections of Fanny's cousins Maria and Julia, but then his attentions unexpectedly turn towards Fanny... Written by
