Overview

The Watsons by Jane Austen

Mr. Watson is a widowed clergyman with two sons and four daughters. The youngest daughter, Emma, has been brought up by a wealthy aunt and is consequently better educated and more refined than her sisters. But when her aunt contracts a foolish second marriage, Emma is obliged to return to her father's house. There she is chagrined by the crude and reckless husband-hunting of two of her twenty-something sisters.

This was a really good story. I thought it was a shame The Watsons was not continued into a novel. Emma is a wonderful girl. I love that she asked Charlie to dance with her.

true wit of jane here lies within. indeed, it showed no distinction between both authors' perspectives. the story flowed like a refreshing brook.
