|I'm so proud of Catherine!

I love how, as Catherine goes through the ordeal of being thrown out of Northanger Abbey and making her way home by herself, it is clear that she is not even in the slightest way inclined to alarm herself with gothic fears. When she hears hesitant steps in the hallway outside her chamber she just goes and opens the door to find out who it is. Her last night in the abbey, with the high winds and strange noises, raises no concern. She assures Eleanor that there is no doubt of her getting home safely. And, "the journey in itself had no terrors for her." I'd have to agree with Mrs. Morland's assessment that, "it is a great comfort to find that she is not a poor helpless creature, but can shift very well for herself."
