Emma Woodhouse is beautiful, clever, rich, and quite certain she is immune to romance. Inspired by the recent marriage of her friend and governess, Emma decides to play matchmaker to a young girl, Harriet Smith. Emma's good-hearted, though misdirected, attempts proceed to cause many a comedic misunderstanding. Emma is a timeless tale of a young woman seeking her true nature and finding true love in the process.

Perhaps the out-and-out funniest of Jane Austen's books. Telling the story of a heroine Austen feared readers would actively dislike, Emma has turned out to be a character whose creation was necessary to the development of the spoiled rich kid genre of literature, TV and movies. Since Emma knows what's best for everybody, she sets about trying to straighten the world out. It doesn't work. Fortunately, before completely screwing up everyone else's life, she gets her head screwed on straight and for the first time sees what it's all about.Book Description:
