Emma by Jane Austen (1815)
Emma Woodhouse is rich, beautiful, clever, and fancies herself as an exceptional matchmaker. Although not interested in marriage herself, she can’t help but interfere in the love lives of those around her. But when her matchmaking schemes start to go downhill due to her own poor understanding of love, Emma is faced with some consequences that are difficult to come back from.
