    Summary

    Mary Bennet knows her role in life: to honour her parents, to be a good Christian, and to accept her lot with faith in the Lord's divine plan. If she sometimes chafes at that role, she hopes she is suitably penitent afterwards.

    One thing she is clear on, after being told so often; Mary's lot is not to marry as her sisters have.

    And if she wonders why, then, she has been sent to London with Kitty... well, her mother never was known for great depths of logic.

    Summary

    When in search for a tragic hero, no one would have thought to look twice at Henry Tilney. His life may have begun promising, being born under the roof of a former abbey as the second son of a very stern military man, but from this point on both Henry’s situation in life and his disposition were entirely against him…

    [A full rewrite of Jane Austen's “Northanger Abbey”, this time told from the perspective of Henry Tilney. Since the original is named for the Tilney’s home, I thought this reimagining should be named for the Morland’s.
    Written to be canon compliant, historically accurate and in the style of the original work.]

    Summary

    "Death is very likely the single best invention of life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new." ~Steve Jobs
