  • "Catherine Morland is from a small provincial village. She is invited by a wealthy neighbor to accompany her to Bath where she is carried away with affairs of the heart which labor clumsily toward unsatisfactory conclusions."
  • "PLAYAWAY. In flight from a disastrous marriage, Helen Huntingdon retreats to the desolate, half-ruined moorland mansion, Wildfell Hall, with her small son, Arthur. Here she adopts the assumed name of Graham and makes her living as a painter, the inconvenience of the house outweighed by the fact that she and Arthur are removed from the harmful influence of her drunken, degenerate husband. Although the house is isolated and she seeks initially to avoid the attentions the the neighbouring families, it is difficult to do so and all too soon she becomes an object of speculation and then cruel gossip. Narrated by her neighbour Gilbert Markham, and from the pages of her own diary, "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall" portrays Helen's eloquent struggle for independence at a time when the law and society defined a married woman as her husband's property."

  • "A clergymanþs daughter is taken to Bath for the season. There she falls in love, but causes difficulties by imagining herself as the heroine of a gothic novel."@en
  • "Catherine Morland is the very ideal of a nice girl from a happy family, but she has an overactive imagination. She is also obsessed with Gothic novels, where terrible things happen to the heroine, which gets her into all sorts of trouble. When she meets funny, sharp Henry Tilney, she's instantly taken with him. But when she is invited to his home, the sinister Northanger Abbey, her preoccupation with fantasy starts to get in the way of reality."@en
  • ""When Catherine Morland, a country clergyman's daughter, is invited to spend a season in Bath with the fashionable high society, little does she imagine the delights and perils that await her. Captivated and disconcerted by what she finds, and introduced to the joys of 'Gothic novels' by her new friend, Isabella, Catherine longs for mystery and romance. When she is invited to stay with the beguiling Henry Tilney and his family at Northanger Abbey, she expects mystery and intrigue at every turn. However, the truth turns out to be even stranger than fiction ..." -- Container."@en
  • "During an eventful social season at Bath, the charmingly imperfect Catherine is invited to Northanger Abbey, the mysterious country home of the sophisticated Tilney family. There she believes she has discovered all the trappings of a gothic novel, and she imagines the worst."@en
  • "Jane Austen's first major novel, a parody of the popular literature of the time, is an ironic tale of the romantic folly of men and women in pursuit of love, marriage, and money. The humorous adventures of young Catherine as she encounters "the difficulties and dangers of a six weeks' residence in Bath" lead to some of Austen's most brilliant social satire. There is Catherine's hilarious liaison with a paragon of bad manners and boastfulness; her disastrous friendship with an unforgettably crass coquette; and a whirl of cotillion dances with their timeless mortifications. A visit to ancient Northanger Abbey, the ancestral home of the novel's handsome hero, excites the irrepressible Catherine's hopes of romance amid gothic horrors. But what awaits her there is a drama of a different kind, in this most youthfully exuberant and broadly comic of Jane Austen's works."@en

What is the mystery surrounding the death of Henry's mother? Is the family concealing a terrible secret within the elegant rooms of the Abbey? Can she trust Henry, or is he part of an evil conspiracy? Catherine finds dreadful portents in the most prosaic events, until Henry persuades her to see the peril in confusing life with art."@en

Her first outing in society does not quite fit this specification, although she does fall decidedly in love, which is an adventure in itself. Young and susceptible, Catherine Morland expects dark secrets and many dangers to be lurking in the hidden recesses of Northanger Abbey. In fact, the real obstacles lying in her path are more mundane, but just as serious as her imagined horrors. Thought to be Austen's earliest novel, this audio version is read tremendously by Anna Massey, a much respected and prolific theatre, television and film actress."@en
