Cover of book Abbeychurch
Categories: Fiction » Historical Fiction

From the preface to a book: The later story was a rather hasty attempt to parody the modern sensation novel, as Northanger Abbey did the Radclyffe school, but it makes the mistake of having too real a


mystery. However, such as they are, the two stories go forth in company, trusting that they may not prove too utterly wearisome to be brought forward this second time.
“Abbeychurch”, written in 1844 by Charlotte Mary Yonge, a nineteenth century English novelist, focuses on the problem of self development through self control.
