Summary, etc.:
In this modern retelling of Austen's classic, bookish minister's daughter Cat Morland joins her well-to-do friends in Edinburgh and falls for an up-and-coming lawyer who may harbor unsettling secrets.
Catherine 'Cat' Morland's sheltered existence in rural Dorset involves losing herself in novels and her smartphone; it has been entirely bereft of the romance and excitement for which she yearns. When Cat's neighbours invite her to Edinburgh Festival, she is sure adventure beckons. A Highland Dance class brings Cat a new acquaintance: Henry Tilney, a pale, dark-eyed gentleman whose family home sounds perfectly thrilling. When Cat is invited to stay at Northanger Abbey, her imagination runs riot: an ancient abbey, crumbling turrets, secret chambers, ghosts ... and Henry!
