Young Catherine Morland lives in a world of fantasy, where the intrigue of her favourite Gothic Romances is the truth of her private world, imposing itself throughout her life---but as she soon finds, life is both more and less mysterious than her guilty fireside pleasure would have her believe. The plain and sheltered daughter of an enterprising, but overprotective clergyman, Catherine is whisked away at seventeen by family friends into the socialite haven of Bath's winter festivities where she is exposed to characters both trustworthy and dangerous, but all make her questionher perception of the world. Among them, there is Henry---the amiable but aloof love interest. Isabella---the trouble-making, overly flirtatious confidant with secret designs. And John, the self-involved braggart with his own delusions. Through these people, and the events thatentwine them all, Catherine begins to see the world the way it truly is, for better or worse.Although Northanger Abbey was Jane Austen's first completed novel, it was not published until after her death.

Webster’s paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-French thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen was edited for three audiences. The first includes French-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL® or TOEIC® preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or French speakers enrolled in English speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in French in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement® (AP®) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's French Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in French or English.
