Cat Morland lives in a dull little town where nothing ever happens. She craves the adventure she finds between the pages of her books. But an opportunity to attend the Edinburgh Festival with family friends gives Cat the opportunity to spice up her life, and when she meets the boisterous Thorpe family and the mysterious Tilneys. When she’s invited to stay at historic Northanger Abbey, she finds herself immersed in a fantasy, but is it all in her head?
This book was my first completed read for Austen Month and it was so much fun.
