Northanger Abbey is a well-known and beloved Jane Austen novel. This parody of Gothic fiction was the first of Austen's novels, but it wasn't published until after her death. This fun, thrilling novel parodied the habitual cliches of gothic novels and it has won a spot into the heart of Jane Austen fans, spurring numerous adaptations, movies, and TV series.

The story follows young and naive Catherine Morland, a "young heroine in training" who spends too much time reading fiction. When Catherine is invited by her neighbors to spend the ball season with them, she is delighted to meet Tilney, a young gentleman, Thorpe, a quiet and reserved young man, and Isabella, a vivacious and lively young lady.

"Beware how you give your heart."

While Catherine is not interested at all in Thorpe, he perceived Tilney as a rival for Catherine's affections and tries to sabotage their friendship. This puts Catherine in many awkward situations. When she is invited to stay in their manor, Northanger Abbey, Catherine puts their friendship further at risk by fantasizing about the place like the scenario of a Gothic novel.

Will young Catherine mature past her delusions, or will her daydreams end her friendship with Tilney? Follow the twists and turns of this thrilling story in this edition of Northanger Abbey.
