This Story Is Sweet

Editorial Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

Jane Austen skewers the novelistic extremes of her day made popular in many 18th-century Gothic potboilers. Dilapidated castles, locked rooms, inexplicable chests, enigmatic notes, and tyrannical fathers all figure into Northanger Abbey, but with a decidedly sardonic twist.
