Henry Dashwood, his second wife, and their three daughters live for many years with Henry's wealthy bachelor uncle. That uncle decides, in late life, to will his property first to Henry, then to Henry's first son John, and then to John's three-year-old son Harry. The uncle dies, but Henry lives just a year after that. On Henry's death, the new owner of the estate, then, is John Dashwood, the child of Henry's first marriage. Henry's second wife, Mrs Dashwood, and their daughters, Elinor, Marianne and Margaret, inherit only a small income. On his deathbed, Mr Henry Dashwood extracts a promise from his son John to take care of his half-sisters. But before Henry is long in the grave, John's greedy wife, Fanny, persuades her husband to renege on the promise, appealing to his concerns about diminishing his own son Harry's inheritance and to the fact that his sisters are but half-blood and therefore undeserving of his family loyalty. Après le décès de Henry Dashwood, ses trois filles, Elinor, Marianne et Margaret, ainsi que leur mère se trouvent privées de leur part d'héritage par leur demi-frère John (né d'un précédent mariage de Henry Dashwood) qui se laisse facilement convaincre par sa femme Fanny qu'il ne leur doit rien. Leur condition financière considérablement diminuée, elles se retrouvent dans une situation particulièrement difficile.

Northanger Abbey was the first of Jane Austen's novels to be completed for publication, in 1803. However, it was not published until after her death in 1817, along with another novel of hers, Persuasion. Northanger Abbey is a satire of Gothic novels, which were quite popular at the time, in 1798–99. This coming-of-age story revolves around Catherine Morland, a young and naïve "heroine," who entertains the reader on her journey to a better understanding of the world and those around her. In the course of the novel, she discovers that she differs from those other women who crave wealth or social acceptance, as instead she wishes only to have happiness supported by genuine morality. Catherine Morland est un roman de Jane Austen, publié posthumément en décembre 1817, mais rédigé dès 1798-1799 et alors intitulé Susan. L'œuvre raille la vie mondaine de Bath, que Jane Austen avait connue lors d'un séjour en 1797, et parodie les romans gothiques fort appréciés à l'époque : son héroïne, la toute jeune Catherine Morland, qui ne rêve que de sombres aventures se déroulant dans de vieux châteaux ou des abbayes gothiques, croit qu'elle pourra en vivre une lorsqu'elle est invitée à séjourner à l'abbaye de Northanger. Une idylle s'y développe entre elle et Henry Tilney, le fils cadet du propriétaire des lieux.
