Om boka

Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and
happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and
had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or
vex her. She was the youngest of the two daughters of a most affectionate,
indulgent father; and had, in consequence of her sister's marriage, been
mistress of his house from a very early period. Her mother had died too long
ago for her to have more than an indistinct rememb- rance of her caresses; and
her place had been supplied by an excellent woman as governess, who had fallen
little short of a mother in affection. Sixteen years had Miss Taylor been in
Mr. Woodhouse's family, less as a governess than a friend, very fond of both
daughters, but particularly of Emma. Between them it was more the intimacy of
sisters.

Even before Miss Taylor had ceased to hold the nominal office
of governess, the mildness of her temper had hardly allowed her to impose any
restraint; and the shadow of authority being now long passed away, they had
been living together as friend and friend very mutually attached, and Emma
doing just what she liked; highly esteeming Miss Taylor's judgment, but
directed chiefly by her own.
