Catherine Morland is, "in training to be a heroine", and can't get her fill of the popular gothic novels that are available to her in 18th-century England. But when she lets her imagination get carried away, she may risk losing the one she loves. In Northanger Abbey, Jane Austen's gentle parody of 18th-century gothic novels, Actress Joanna Lumley, best known in the U.S. for her work on Absolutely Fabulous adds subtle humor and great grace to a classic story. Listeners will be entranced with Austen's intricate descriptions of a social system beyond their fathoming, where choice of a partner is an all-consuming task, and where ghosts or madness lurk around the corners of great estates and castles.
