A Modern RetellingBook - 2014
Alexander McCall Smith modernizes Jane Austen's story of Emma Woodhouse. Emma Woodhouse's widowed father is an anxious man, obsessed with nutrition and the latest vitamins. Emma pursues a degree in interior design at university in Bath, and then returns to set up shop in her home village.

Little does she know she is not the only person encouraging romantic pairings in the village.
