    Fanny Price, a young girl from a poor family, is being raised by her rich uncle and aunt, Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, at Mansfield Park. She grows up with her four cousins, Tom Bertram, Edmund Bertram, Maria Bertram and Julia, but is always treated as inferior to them; only Edmund Bertram shows her real kindness. He is also the most virtuous of the siblings: Maria and Julia are vain and spoiled, while Tom is an irresponsible gambler.

    Love the book and this audiobook!
    Well read. Ingeniously written (Jane Austen was so clever).
    Language is beautiful, with humor and wit!

    Christopher Banks, an English boy born in early-20th-century Shanghai, is orphaned at age nine when both his mother and father disappear under suspicious circumstances. He grows up to become a renowned detective, and more than 20 years later, returns to Shanghai to solve the mystery of the disappearances.

    Everett Leiter says: "Just short of 5 stars"
    "Enjoyable!"
    Overall

    If you have enjoyed reading Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go (both by Kazuo Ishiguro), you will appreciate When We Were Orphans.

    Written with beautiful language, the plot is very creative. Characters are orginal and very human.

    John Lee read the book in the most wonderful way, bringing characters to life.
