Jane Austen’s gripping first novel of love and marriage
The well-bred Miss Catherine Morland always seems to have her nose stuck in a book, and the Gothic classics are her favorites. During the winter social season, she catches the eyes of two men: the sweet and witty Henry Tilney and the vain John Thorpe. When Catherine is invited to the Tilney family estate of Northanger Abbey, she expects to be met with the brooding and dramatic architecture of her novels, full of hidden secrets behind locked doors. What she finds is even better.

“An amusing send-up of Gothic romance novels, [and] a sketchbook for the plots and characters that would come to full bloom in Austen’s later novels.” – San Francisco Gate
Jane Austen (1775–1817) was an English novelist known for her fiction set among England’s landed gentry. She was the seventh of eight children and was educated mostly at home in Hampshire. Her best-known works include Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, and Emma. Although her novels, all of which were published anonymously, did not bring her fame during her lifetime, she is now one of the most widely read writers in the English language.
