For my 101th post I am introducing a new weekly feature...Wooing Wednesday, for everything romance - contemporary, historical, suspense, classics, young adult, etc.
For my first Wooing Wednesday post I will be reviewing a novel that I have read at least twice (so far) and was written by one of my favourite authors. This is not the first romance I ever read but it is one of my favourites as it has humour and a dashing hero that banters without too much brooding.
|One of the million different covers.|
Written by Jane Austen
1815, 474 Pages (Penguin Classics 2003 version)
Genre: classic, romance, humour
Emma's father, Mr. Wodehouse, wishes people would stop getting married and disrupting his life. Hasn't he been a good man and good father? First his eldest daughter gets married and moves away. Now Emma's companion and governess, Miss. Taylor has married a widower l(Mr. Weston) leaving Emma too much time to think. Emma fancies herself a matchmaker, after all she was the one to set up Miss. Taylor and Mr. Weston, and wonders who else she can match up. Mr. Wodehouse tells her to keep things as they are as he cannot stand anymore disruptions. Mr. Knightly, her friend and brother-in-law, wisely advises her to not meddle in other people's lives, and just worry about herself. Emma is not looking for a man of her own so sets about coupling off other people - whether they want it or not.
|One of favourite lines from Emma.|
|A great romantic line!|
Next Wooing Wednesday we will be looking at historical romance series Maiden Lane by Elizabeth Hoyt.
