Center Point Large Print Books
Caroline Ashley is a journalist on the rise at the Washington Post until the sudden death of her father brings her back to Thorny Hollow to care for her mentally fragile mother and their aging antebellum home. The only respite from the eternal rotation of bridge club meetings and garden parties is her longtime friend, Brooks Elliott. A professor of journalism, Brooks is the voice of sanity and reason in the land of pink lemonade and triple layer coconut cakes. But when she meets a fascinating, charismatic young man on the cusp of a brand new industry, she ignores Brooks’s misgivings and throws herself into the project.

Emma is my favorite Jane Austen novel, and this was a fun adaptation of the story set in the modern South. It's not an exact retelling, though; the author included her own original twists and turns. The romantic conclusion was inevitable, but the path to get there was satisfying, as with Jane Austen's Emma. And for anyone who wants to know how precisely to make a chili-slaw dog, there's a recipe included in the back!
