Who doesn’t love Jane Austen? She is timeless and tells timeless stories about timeless women. I have read almost all of Austen’s novels and Emma is one of my absolute favorites.
Emma Woodhouse is one of Austen’s most unique characters because she is independently wealthy and doesn’t really ‘need’ anyone which I absolutely love. Not to mention the story of match making has the upmost potential to be comical and a bit of a blunder. This story has been remade time and again, including pop culture icon film, Clueless.
Penguin is releasing a 200th anniversary DELUXE edition of the book! I am thrilled to be able to offer not only a giveaway for the book but a conversation with the author as well!
