Emma + Elsie started from a basic premise—what if two of my favorite Jane Austen characters, Emma Woodhouse and Elizabeth Bennet, were best friends in modern times?

 It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a women in possession of a good piece of gossip, must be in want of her best friend.

Heartwarming, feminine, and laugh-out-loud funny, Emma + Elsie is a story about a surprising friendship between two girls as they celebrate the end of their teen years and promise never to grow apart.

For fans of Jane Austen, Emma + Elsie is a serialized, modern mashup and retelling of Pride and Prejudice and Emma.
