Northanger Abbey was the first of Jane Austen's novels to be completed for publication, though she had.
Without suffering any romantic alarm, in the consideration of their daughter's long and lonely journey, Mr. Morland could not but feel that it might have been productive of much unpleasantness to her; that it was what they could never have voluntarily suffered; and that, in forcing her on such a measure, General Tilney had acted neither honourably nor feelingly—neither as a gentleman nor as a parent.
She was assured of his affection; and that heart in return was solicited, which, perhaps, they pretty equally knew was already entirely his own; for, though Henry was now sincerely attached to her, though he felt and delighted in all the excellencies of her character and truly loved her society, I must confess that his affection originated in nothing better than gratitude, or, in other words, that a persuasion of her partiality for him had been the only cause of giving her a serious thought.
It is a new circumstance in romance, I acknowledge, and dreadfully derogatory of an heroine's dignity; but if it be as new in common life, the credit of a wild imagination will at least be all my own.
The General, accustomed on every ordinary occasion to give the law in his family, prepared for no reluctance but of feeling, no opposing desire that should dare to clothe itself in words, could ill brook the opposition of his son, steady as the sanction of reason and the dictate of conscience could make it.
But, in such a cause, his anger, though it must shock, could not intimidate Henry, who was sustained in his purpose by a conviction of its justice. He felt himself bound as much in honour as in affection to Miss Morland, and believing that heart to be his own which he had been directed to gain, no unworthy retraction of a tacit consent, no reversing decree of unjustifiable anger, could shake his fidelity, or influence the resolutions it prompted.
To begin perfect happiness at the respective ages of twenty-six and eighteen, is to do pretty well; and professing myself moreover convinced, that the General's unjust interference, so far from being really injurious to their felicity, was perhaps rather conducive to it, by improving their knowledge of each other, and adding strength to their attachment, I leave it to be settled by whomsoever it may concern, whether the tendency of this work be altogether to recommend parental tyranny, or reward filial disobedience.

Catherine Morland is the heroine of Northanger Abbey and her life takes her from her quiet, unassuming village life to a visit to the city of Bath one summer where she is exposed to society and also to the power of love.
Here is an example of how the narrator describes Catherine at the very beginning of the novel: Through her experiences in Bath, Catherine learns how people can manipulate each other. Like Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice, Catherine comes to know her own mind and behavior more clearly and she is eventually able to distinguish between fantasy and reality having made a number of misjudgments about people she has encountered in her adventures away from the narrow confines of home.
He meets Catherine early on and their mutual attraction develops throughout the book. Henry can sometimes be a little negative about women but he is mostly an energetic and good-natured character.
Here is how the narrator describes Henry Tilney when he is introduced to Catherine and the reader: In chapter twenty-one the narrator gives the reader a brief description of the atmosphere when the General is not in the same room as Catherine: Northanger Abbey shows the reader how conversations can both reveal, and conceal, the things that people want to communicate.This quotation describes very well the characteristics of the Gothic heroine as being fragile, passive, innocent and pure.
