Review: Emma of 83rd Street by Audrey Bellezza & Emily Harding
This one is a charming read for Austen fans. Emma retellings are nothing new, but this one has such a fun spin on the character that it is impossible not to be drawn in to the spoiled and optimistic Emma Woodhouse's world. Parts of the novel follow the original very faithful, while the authors use a dash of artistic licence to suit the setting and situation. Things come right in the end, of course, but the adventure is in the how ... and what Emma learns along the way. And thankfully, this version is very entertaining.
A treat for Austen fans.
