Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich. Also, rather spoiled, and overly-confident in her matchmaking abilities with the residents of her village in Highbury. Though convinced that she herself will never marry, Emma sets out to find an eligible match for her new friend, Harriet Smith. But matters of the heart are never simple. Emma's obsession with finding Harriet the perfect partner leads her into a complex tangle of intrigues, misunderstandings, and conflicts of interest, after several new admirers come to the fore...admirers whose sights are set upon the wrong woman. Jane Austen's charming novel of love, friendship, and social grace is a timeless classic - as poignant and riveting today as it has been for generations of readers since its initial publication.
