Description of this Book

During an eventful season at Bath, young, naive Catherine Morland experiences the joys of fashionable society for the first time. She is delighted to make new acquaintances, including flirtatious Isabella, who shares her love of Gothic romance and horror, and the sophisticated Henry and Eleanor Tilney. When the Tilneys invite her to their family's mysterious home, Northanger Abbey, she's eager to visit. But once there, her imagination, which has been influenced by gothic novels of sensation and intrigue, makes her suspect their father, General Tilney, of committing terrible crimes. With its broad comedy and irrepressible heroine, Northanger Abbey is the most youthful and optimistic of Jane Austen's works.

Author's Bio

Jane Austen (1775-1817) is widely considered to be one of the greatest and most beloved English writers of all time. Best known for her six widely adapted novels-Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and Northanger Abbey-she used her writing to explore and critique British society and the constraints placed on women by social expectations and economic circumstances, especially in regards to love and marriage. Rachel Atkins is an experienced actor and voice artist who trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Her stage performances include Romeo and Juliet, Blithe Spirit, and The School for Scandal, and her television and radio credits include Midwinter of the Spirit, Law & Order, and The Archers. The narrator of numerous audiobooks, she is a regular on BBC Radio Drama and BBC Radio Comedy.
