Next month, our book club will be reading Emma by Alexander McCall Smith.  This is a modern retelling of the Jane Austen classic.  In this version of the story, Emma Woodhouse returns home after school to live with her widowed father and to start her own interior design business.  While home, she is busy with the things she does best: matchmaking and offering advice.
