The WatsonsBook - 2007
Left impoverished upon the death of her aunt, Emma Watson has no option but to be reunited with her estranged father and siblings. Initially delighted with her new life--including the fashionable society balls to which she now has access--Emma soon realizes that her family harbors many ill feelings, not least those springing from the sisters' hopes--and disappointments--in snaring a husband. So when the eligible and suitably rich Tom Musgrove begins to transfer his affections from her sister Margaret to Emma, the result can only be further sibling rivalry and unrest. A delightful, exquisitely drawn portrait of family life, The Watsons is Jane Austen at her storytelling best. Author of the masterpieces Pride and Prejudice and Emma , Jane Austen (1775-1817) is one of the most beloved novelists of all time.
