New Release! 


A must-read sequel to Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey

The latest release by Kate Westwood!

Kate Westwood’s newest release, Woodston, follows Catherine Moreland and Henry Tilney through the front door of Woodston, Henry’s parish and Catherine’s new home.

Will Catherine and Henry fail to cope with the challenges of newly married life, or will they find their happy-ever-after, after all?

Married life is certainly a challenge at any time, but when you add secret doorways, strange comings and goings, and a handsome interloper, only mayhem can ensue! Follow Catherine’s journey as she tries hard to learn the skills of a housewife and partner, while uncovering a few skeletons in the closet which she never expected to find at Woodston!

When Catherine Moreland married Henry Tilney, she was sure the seemingly cosy Woodston parsonage could not harbour any secrets such as she had imagined to lurk at Northanger Abbey.

It is not long, however, before Catherine finds there may be more skeletons in Woodston’s closets than she could ever wish for to occupy her imagination! Meanwhile, determined to become a perfect wife, Catherine gets herself into one scrape after another, and it is not long before she gives up hope of ever gaining Henry’s respect! When temptation visits Woodston in the form of a charismatic drawing instructor, all seems lost and Henry and Catherine seem parted forever. Will Catherine be able to uncover the secrets which haunt Woodston and save her marriage?

Many of Northanger Abbey’s beloved characters, including the rapacious Captain Frederick Tilney, the dour General Tilney, Henry’s much loved sister Eleanor, and the despicable flirt, Isabella Thorpe, make appearances in the novel, bringing to the tale the feel of a real sequel to the stories which were begun in Austen’s novel.
