"Landry Park follows a seventeen-year-old girl named Madeline Landry, who is the heir to one of the largest estates in the country and is the scion of the most important and influential family among the gentry. She’s been raised to be proud, intelligent and determined, but she’s also very reserved and ambivalent about her place on the estate. More than anything, she wants to go to the university to further her education, but in her world, heirs are expected to marry and have children right away to ensure the family line, and so her father forbids it. A lot of her struggle comes from learning to fight for what she wants—and also learning what is worth fighting for.Here's more about Landry Park:
Madeline really came about as a sort of cross between Fanny Price and Scarlett O’Hara. I wanted a heroine who was brainy and shy, but also capable of fierce pride and of making difficult decisions. I also wanted the Landry Park estate to be as much a part of Madeline as any other trait or quality. I have farmers in my family, and when you have an intergenerational plot of land that's been passed down from parent to child, the land takes on this whole other element. It’s not just a resource, it’s a necessity, a definition of self. I wanted that symbiotic relationship for Madeline and Landry Park."
