The story is about a beautiful girl Emma. Noted for her beauty and cleverness, Emma is somewhat wasted in the small village of Highbury but takes a great deal of pride in her matchmaking skills. Unique among other women her age, she has no particular need to marry: she is in the unique situation of not needing a husband to supply her fortune.
Although this isn’t my favourite Jane Austen book, I truly enjoyed reading it. The depth of the characters makes it really intriguing, and you can’t help but be a little irritated by Emma. Overall a good read, especially considering it’s free.
