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.
