Northanger Abbey

So the discussion has begun! And our heroine has already stolen our hearts! Catherine Morland-A 17-year-old girl who loves reading Gothic novels. Something of a tomboy in her childhood, she is wrongly worried that she isn't beautiful enough, until men start to take an interest in her at the assembly dances. Catherine lacks experience and sees her life as if she were a heroine in a Gothic novel. What a timely topic, and book to be reading in the twilight hours of an autumnal October, evenings of lengthening shadows and falling leaves that rustle on the air. Photobucket
