Northanger Abbey

By Jane Austen & Scott W Sturm
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen & Scott W Sturm digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

In "Northanger Abbey," Jane Austen invites readers into a world of romance, satire, and coming-of-age transformation. This novel, written with Austen's trademark wit and insight, explores the journey of Catherine Morland, a young woman whose uneventful life in a rural village turns into an exciting adventure full of love, friendship, and self-discovery, set against the backdrop of the charming yet superficial high society of 19th-century England.

Catherine, an avid reader of gothic novels, finds herself thrust into the social whirl of Bath, where she meets the charming and sophisticated Henry Tilney and his sister Eleanor. Invited to the Tilney's ancestral home, Northanger Abbey, Catherine's love for gothic tales fuels her imagination, leading her to misinterpret the ordinary as extraordinary. In this place of mystery, she learns to distinguish between the fantasy world of her novels and the realities of human nature and relationships.


Austen's novel is not only a delightful romance but also a satirical poke at the gothic novel genre popular in her time. It is a witty exploration of the perils of mistaking fiction for reality, and a charming depiction of a young woman's growth from naivety to maturity. The author's sharp observations on social customs and the status of women in society make "Northanger Abbey" a timeless classic that continues to resonate with readers today.


This eBook edition brings Austen's vibrant characters and society to life, offering a perfect blend of humor and romance. It is ideal for fans of classic literature, historical romance, and admirers of Jane Austen's work. Dive into this eBook and let Catherine Morland's journey from a simple country girl to an enlightened young woman captivate you, as it has readers for over two centuries.
