Anne's enduring qualities of sensibleness and gentle good nature are severely tested as events at Kellynch, Bath and across the English channel, force her to confront her fears and endure the thought of loss of all that is dear to her.

It is not long, however, before Catherine finds that 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 beloved sister Eleanor, and the despicable flirt, Isabella Thorpe, make appearances in the novel, bringing to the tale a feel of a real sequel to the stories begun in Austen's novel.
