A timeless classic, Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey is both a coming-of-age story and a parody of the Gothic novels of the nineteenth century. Catherine Morland is destined to be the heroine of her own life story as she navigates friendships and romanticrelationships, and as she learns to let go of childish notions of fantasy regarding the lives of others.
