Pretty, rich young Emma Woodhouse is very pleased with herself when her closest friend, Miss Taylor, marries Mr Weston. Emma thinks that these two people have fallen in love because of her. She decides to find good husbands for her other friends as well.

Soon things begin to go wrong. Mr Elton, who is supposed to marry Emma's friend Harriet, falls in love with Emma. Emma persuades Harriet to think that the farmer she loves is not good enough for her. Emma's good friend Mr Knightley gets more and more angry with her for all this matchmaking. Then Emma herself begins to think that handsome young Frank Churchill is in love with her.

Jane Austen lived quietly in the English countryside about two hundred years ago, and wrote stories that looked very closely at the lives and loves of people of her time. Emma Woodhouse was her own favourite heroine, and the story has been popular all over the world for many years.
