Book Description


See all titles by Alexander McCall Smith

The bestselling and beloved author of the No. 1 Ladiesí Detective Agency series now gives us his charming take on Jane Austen with this modern-day retelling of Emma.

The summer after university, Emma Woodhouse returns home to the village of Highbury, where she will live with her health-conscious father until she is ready to launch her interior-design business and strike out on her own. In the meantime, she will do what she does best: offer guidance to those less wise in the ways of the world than herself. Happily, this summer brings many new faces to Highbury and into the sphere of Emmaís not always perfectly felicitous council: Harriet Smith, a naive teacherís assistant at the ESL school run by the hippie-ish Mrs. Goddard; Frank Churchill, the attractive stepson of Emmaís former governess; and, of course, the perfect Jane Fairfax. This Emma is wise, witty, and totally enchanting, and will appeal equally to McCall Smithís multitude of fans and the enormous community of wildly enthusiastic Austen aficionados.
