17-year-old Catherine Morland, reader of classic gothic novels and romance heroine wannabe, is given the opportunity of a lifetime when her rich neighbors invite her to travel with them to Bath. There, Catherine dances with a charming young man, befriends a bewitching young woman, and soon secures an invitation to a mysterious and enchanting (or so Catherine fancies it must be!) abbey, owned by the family of that charming young man.
Once at the abbey, Catherine encounters a mysterious chest, a strange story of a deceased wife, and a stoic and capricious master. But are these indeed signs that Catherine has stepped into her own gothic novel? Or are there other explanations for such oddities--explanations that, if confronted, could lead Catherine's life in another direction entirely?
