About the Book
The official TV tie-in edition to the new four-part BBC1 adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma.
Emma is wealthy, beautiful, accomplished and a self-proclaimed matchmaker. When Emma meets Harriet Smith, a young girl of unknown parentage, Emma is convinced she can find Harriet a suitable husband. But, in her quest to find Harriet the perfect match, Emma jeopardizes Harriet's happiness and, much to her surprise, her own happiness too.
The much-loved Austen novel has been given a fresh look by award-winning writer Sandy Welch. With well-known actors taking the title roles -- Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller are Emma and Mr Knightley -- this promises to be a very special and enduring adaptation.

Might this social disorder bring about a match for Emma herself?
