The time has come for an unlikely heroine to have a real adventure.

Catherine Moorland has little experience of the world. When a neighbour takes her to visit the fashionable city of Bath, her naiveté leaves her vulnerable. Who should Catherine trust? Whose friendship is genuine and whose will be harmful?

Catherine's adventure becomes sinister when she visits Northanger Abbey. What is hidden in the locked cabinet? Why are the General's children afraid of him? What terrible secrets does he keep in his dead wife's bedroom?

Guided only by the gothic horror stories she so loves reading, Catherine stumbles through her adventures. Will her's be a happy ending? Will she find a hero to share her 'happily ever after'?
