Henry continues to interject himself in Fanny's life, even as she visits her family for the first time in seven years, yet her rejection remains firm. Soon, bad news comes, followed by worse: Tom, fallen down drunk and abandoned by his friends, becomes deathly ill and is brought back home for closely monitored care. Henry tempts Maria away from her husband, Mr. Rushworth, and the two scandalously run off together. Julia marries Mr. Yates and hightails it to Scotland. And Mary reveals a cruelty of character than Edmund can no longer overlook. Fanny returns to Mansfield Park, this time bringing sister Susan with her. Edmund realizes Fanny is the right woman for him.
Did You Know?
Cousin Tom, I am glad to see you well.
The leeches had so much of me I'm glad you see me at all.
