Jane Austen’s Emma
Pledging never to marry or fall in love, the mischievous Emma Woodhouse considers herself the ‘matchmaker of Highbury’. Her newest project, the sweet and naïve Harriet Smith, has already received a proposal, but Emma insists she marry the newly-arrived, eligible vicar Mr. Elton. Unfortunately, Mr Elton is more interested in her, so Emma is forced to fend him off and find another suitor for Harriet – the charming Frank Churchill. But when she realises that Harriet has actually fallen in love with confirmed bachelor, Mr Knightley, she is forced to confront her own feelings – she has loved Mr Knightley all along!
