What would happen if Jane Austen’s Emma was set in the 21st century?
Emma Woodhouse is a caring, considerate girl who is well aware of her good fortune and talent for getting the best out of people. Which is why, whenever she meets someone with untapped potential, she decides to change their life for them – whether they like it or not. So when Emma’s childhood friend, George Knightley, needs help at his family’s country house hotel over the summer, it seems like the perfect chance for Emma to improve the lot of her shy and unfortunate new friend, Harriet Smith. But as Emma’s secret schemes all go horribly wrong, she discovers that no-one and nothing is ever as simple as it seems…
