Read full description of the books:
The bestselling and beloved author of the No. 1 Ladies’ 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 Emma’s not always perfectly felicitous council: Harriet Smith, a naive teacher’s assistant at the ESL school run by the hippie-ish Mrs. Goddard; Frank Churchill, the attractive stepson of Emma’s former governess; and, of course, the perfect Jane Fairfax. This Emma is wise, witty, and totally enchanting, and will appeal equally to McCall Smith’s multitude of fans and the enormous community of wildly enthusiastic Austen aficionados.
