Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen (Hardcover)
“Beware how you give your heart.” Northanger Abbey is a coming-of age satirical novel, which pokes fun at the 18th century British genteel. Seventeen-year-old Catherine Morland is excessively fond of reading Gothic novels. She is invited by the Allens to spend a season in Bath and participate in balls and the theatre. Soon enough, she meets the intriguing and wealthy Henry Tilney, with whom she engages in conversation and frivolity. Her over-active imagination leads her to expect mystery and intrigue at every turn. However, the truth turns out to be far more complicated. Deliciously witty in its portrayal of love, Northanger Abbey is one of Jane Austen’s most endearing classics.
