"Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her." That, of course, is about to change. Thinking herself to be the consummate matchmmaker, Emma tries to arrange a suitable match for her friend Harriet Smith. When her plans unravel, Emma discovers that she understands the feelings of others as little as she does her own heart. With its imperfect but charming heroine and its subtle exploration of relationships, Emma is often seen as Jane Austen's most perfect work. Newly designed and typeset by Waking Lion Press.
