Emma by Alexander McCall Smith was a gift from my sister who thought it amusing to give me a book with the same name, and that’s based on one of my preferred Austen novels. As well as retelling this story has moved the action (is that the right word?!) to Norfolk. So three good reasons to read it.
Review: This is an easy read, but doesn’t charm me in the same way as the original Emma. Perhaps it’s easier to forgive foibles from further away in time?
