Emma Woodhouse is beautiful, clever and rich. She loves "matchmaking" - arranging marriages between her friends and neighbours in the village of Highbury. However, she often creates more heartache than happiness - and what about her own chance of love ...? Jane Austen (1775-1817) is still one of the world's favourite authors and her delightful stories have been enjoyed by generations of readers. Emma was made into a film in 1997 starring Gwyneth Paltrow.
