Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

Northanger Abbey

This novel follows Catherine Morland as she leaves her country home for the first time to travel to Bath during the social season. This coming of age story follows Catherine’s transformation from a child into a young woman over the course of a season at Bath.

Even though this novel wasn’t published until after her death, Northanger Abbey was the first novel Jane Austen ever wrote. Because of that, it shows more cynicism and satire than most Austen novels, especially in regards to women’s duty in society, social acceptance, and the conventions of the novel.
