Although convinced that she herself will never marry, Emma Woodhouse, an intelligent twenty-year-old, imagines herself to be a naturally gifted match-maker. After self-declared success at matchmaking of some family friends Emma takes it upon herself to find an eligible match for her new friend, Harriet Smith. Soon Emma realizes that her obsession with making a match for Harriet has blinded her to the true nature of the situation and her relationship to Mr. Knightley, Emma’s brother-in-law and treasured friend. Mixed with emotions Emma soon has to accept her true feelings for Mr. Knightley and hopes his feelings are reciprocated.
