HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics.

'I always deserve the best treatment because I never put up with any other.'

Beautiful, rich, self-assured and witty, Emma Woodhouse delights in match-making those around her, with no apparent care for her own romantic life. Taking young Harriet Smith under her wing, Emma sets her sights on finding a suitable match for her friend. Chided for her mistakes by old friend Mr Knightley, it is only when Harriet starts to pursue her own love interests that Emma realizes the true hidden depths of her own heart. Delightful, engaging and entertaining, Emma is arguably Austen's most well-loved social comedy.

Review: Emma

User Review  - Joyce Cavin - Goodreads

The other EMMA (not J.A's). Read this when I was still in HS. Morbid plot, tied up nicely, pragmatic. Want to say Charlotte have you ever been happy a day in your life? Read full review
