Twenty-one-year-old Emma Woodhouse comfortably dominates the social order in the village of Highbury, convinced that she has both the understanding and the right to manage other peopleís lives for their own good. Her well-meant interfering centres on the foolish, if appealing, Harriet Smith, the aloof Jane Fairfax, the dangerously attractive Frank Churchill, and the ambitious young vicar Mr. Elton, and it ends with her complacency shattered, her mind awakened to some of lifeís more intractable dilemmas, and her happiness assured.

But as he had no fortune, Anne was persuaded to give him up. Eight years later, Wentworth returns, rich and unwed. What happens as the two are thrown together in the social world of Bath and as an eager new suitor appears for Anne is touchingly and wittily told in a masterpiece that is also one of the most entrancing novels in the English language.
