Review: Northanger Abbey (Jane Austen)

Jane Austen - Northanger Abbey - Thoughts

Northanger Abbey is such a delightful read.
Jane Austen introduces us her heroine, a young, innocent, and humble girl named Catherine.
Our so called heroine is the protagonist of a story which is made of light-hearted tales, humor, frivolity, ingenuity. 73 more words
