Northanger Abbey

It has been such a delight to me to revert back to reading this wonderful classic, quite a departure from the modern historical prose. Jane Austen's turn of phrase really makes for one's total concentration to be able to glean the complete and exact intent. I was commenting to Amanda last eveing that I was certainly glad to have the benefit of several dvd's of Jane's works, which really aid the reader in following along with the regency dialog and semantics. If you are interested you really must follow along with the Austenprose sidebar link and read the wonderful expose' on Mr. Henry Tilney, also found here. Such a delightful read!
