By Jane Austen
“Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her.”

Emma Woodhouse’s misplaced confidence in her meddlesome matchmaking causes romantic strife in her small community. Unaware of her tendency to be prideful, jealous, and self-serving, Emma genuinely believes she can help those around her find love.
But ultimately, Emma is oblivious to the harm she’s causing and needs a true friend, Mr Knightley, to help her see the consequences of her actions.
This story is about self-discovery, overcoming the tendency to put ourselves before others, the importance of friendships that speak truth into our lives, and transformation.
