Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Beautiful, clever, rich - and single Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protigie Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected. With its imperfect but charming heroine and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships, Emma is often seen as Jane Austin's most flawless work. This edition includes a new chronology, additional suggestions for further reading and the original Penguin Classics introduction by Tony Tanner.
