The Book Club book

Jane Austen's Emma is a wonderful character. 'Handsome, clever, and rich' but also highly skilled at the romantic match making of others.  For herself, she thinks she will never be married.  But does she understand others as well as she thinks she does? And will she never fall in love herself?

"This is a late work by Jane Austen, written when Austen was at the height of her powers as a novelist. Become knowledgeable about one of Britain's best loved authors through this beautifully written story."
