    One thought on “Miss Eleanor Tilney: or, The Reluctant Heroine”

    1. Written for fun, as stress relief, and to exist in the world of Northanger Abbey. All these years I wondered about Eleanor's story, so I decided to give her one.

    2. This is an interesting idea for a novella and I loved learning more about Henry and Eleanor, but it felt very rushed.

    3. I enjoyed this very much! Eleanor Tilney, whom I adore, gets to be a heroine herself in this literate and charming story. And being #TeamTilney I am pleased to report that Henry Tilney is as delightful as he ought to be (and so is his charming future wife). Recommended to all those who love Northanger Abbey.

    4. An enjoyable reworking of "Northanger Abbey" from the point of view of Eleanor Tilney. The expansion of the gentleman with the washing list into a real character is done well, and if the ending is a touch ex machina it's fine in the context of the story and the horrible General. It was fun to note where key passages of the novel take place, sometimes without this heroine having any idea.There were a few typos and some US usage which jarred in a novel so closely linked to Austen, but it was an en [...]

    5. Delightful read; Lovely characters, charm and wit aplenty. If you are a fan of The Great British Bake Off, then you will want to read this book for the same lively yet steady rain of pure English countryside satisfaction that will settle into your bones. Have a pot of tea and some cakes at the ready and settle in for a read that will leave you wanting more!

    6. If you like Jane Austen, you will like this novel which is basically fanfic written by a successful commercial author around a side character in the novel Northanger Abbey.If you *love* Northanger Abbey, then you will love this novel.
