Be the judge of your own happiness.

The next book in the Austen Project has been released and this time it is Emma.  Alexander McCall Smith is the author.  His earlier work includes the series The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.

Emma Woodhouse has just graduated from University and she's headed  home to Norfolk.  She's ready to enter adulthood with a bang. But on her own terms. 

While trying to get her interior design business up and running, Emma gets distracted by the infinite possibilities of matchmaking.  Soon she's pairing up people in the village, including her friend Harriet.  

Emma thinks she's wise beyond her years but she's about to realize that she still has a lot to learn.


I have seen some truly scathing reviews of this novel.  Honestly, you'd think they were written using basilisk blood and meant to turn possible readers to stone. But I'm not going to let that stop me.  I'm going to give it a chance anyway.  Waiting on the library for it though so...soon.
