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."

What follows in Austen's classic distresses and vexes Emma very much indeed--and in such a funny way--making her one of the author's most memorable and beloved characters.
