    I really enjoyed this modern LDS version of Emma. I thought this story was told in a fun way and I love the modern twists. Emma, Emma, Emma. I was almost embarrassed for her at times because she was so focused on her life coaching and "helping" that she often made a mess of things--without meaning to, of course. What I also really liked is that Emma was this 6 foot tall woman with flaming red hair, that she insisted on calling auburn, who tried so hard to be a good person, yet wasn't perfect at [...]

    This book is true to the spirit and story of Jane Austen's Emma. This book is set near Washington DC, rather than England. It is also set in the modern day. The characters are also members of the LDS faith.Emma takes great joy in helping others achieve success in romance. She has just helped her relative and best friend find romance and marriage. Buoyed by this achievement she sets her sights on Harriet, or Harri, the new nanny in town. She finds the perfect young man for her, but as in the orig [...]

  • Kathy * Bookworm Nation says:

    I thought this was a fun retelling of Jane Austen’s Emma. It sticks pretty closely to the format of the original, but does do its own thing. Especially towards the end. I liked when it changed things up a bit and became more unique. I think I liked Emma more in the original version, but she was still okay in this one and you still root for her to figure things out. I didn’t feel as much chemistry between her and Justin, but I still liked their relationship. Overall, it was a fun romantic com [...]

  • Becky R. says:

    First off, let me say that Emma is one of those characters from Austen's repertoire of female leads that you either take to right away or find slightly off-putting with her need to "help" other people. I always seemed to find myself in that second category, but liked to see the development of her character over time and enjoyed seeing her taken down a peg by Mr. Knightley as she learned that maybe her ways are not always the best or seemingly correct all of the time. (We all learn that, right?) [...]

    I saw this available on Netgalley and wondered if I should request it. First, while raised LDS, and still having the outward appearance of a good Mormon girl, I am personally struggling with religion. I generally have not cared for books with a highly religious theme, they turn me off. I was glad I gave this book a chance though, as though while it was very LDS in nature, it wasn't preachy at all, so I didn't feel sad or uncomfortable while reading it. I was just able to appreciate all the LDS r [...]

  • Trish at Between My Lines says:

    2.5 starsI thought Emma: A Latter Day Tale sounded like a fun retelling of a Jane Austen book that I have read and loved previously. However I missed a big clue in the name. A latter day tale is hinting that this book is set within the mormon community which I wasn't expecting and put a different spin on the story.Even thought I read most genres, the genre I always avoid is Christian Fiction (even though I am one) as this just isn't something I want to read about. It doesn't appeal to me and I d [...]

    4 STARSI have never read Emma by Jane Austen so I can't compare the two stories together. This Emma A Latter-day Tale I liked. I liked the characters, At times I smiled, could not believe that one of the characters did that. It is a fun clean read with some good points in the story. It is a LDS Novel so their are church terms or names that some might not know. It also talks about Prayer, That we can be forgiven for our sins through Jesus Christ.Emma wants to be a life coach. She does not plan to [...]

  • Stefanie says:

    Keep in mind that I write this review without having finished reading Emma by Jane Austen and that I have only seen the movie so far. I’m getting around to reading it, perhaps just not yet. This is the book that I picked up right after reading The Reluctant Blogger, so yes I was kind of aware of some Mormon things (because both of these feature a lot of LDS customs etc.). But I was also over it. Especially since the whole LDS scene didn’t add anything to the story, it felt a bit pointless to [...]

  • Heather says:

    When I first started reading this book I wasn't so sure I was going to like it because I thought I already knew what was going to happen and knew who the various characters were. However, once I got through the first few chapters I started to really enjoy it. Overall I thought it was a cute, well done, retelling of Emma.

  • Georgiana 1792 says:

    Vienna, Virginia è una perfetta HighburyQuando ho scelto di leggere questo libro pensavo di trovarmi davanti a un retelling moderno di Emma (tra l'altro, l'autrice ha scritto i retelling anche di altri romanzi austeniani).Se fossi stata americana mi sarei resa conto subito che il titolo di questo romanzo conteneva delle chiare parole chiave. Latter Day non voleva dire "dei giorni nostri", bensì "degli Ultimi Giorni", come riferimento ai Santi degli Ultimi Giorni, ovvero alla religione mormone. [...]

    Fun Emma rewrite.

  • Chrissy (The Every Free Chance Reader) says:

    Did I enjoy this book: I will admit, I have not read Jane Austen’s Emma. I know, I know…for shame! How could I not?! It is on my list to read, and soon. I have read a number of modern retellings of Ms. Austen’s Emma and I have enjoyed all of them. This one being no exception. Emma: A Latter-day Tale was a good story that kept me wanting to see how it ended. It took a bit longer to get through than I was expecting but it was a good read nonetheless.While I did enjoy the book, I really didn [...]

  • Tressa (Wishful Endings) says:

    3.5 starsI love everything Jane Austen. I have read her novel, Emma, and seen two different film adaptations. It isn't my favorite of her books because it is fairly lengthy, with not much going on. However, I do love both of the movies. They take out a lot of the in-between stuff that was slow in the book. I have really enjoyed several Austen retellings as well, so I was excited to receive an ARC of this for review and join this tour. I also really love the cover!It took me a good third of the w [...]

  • Rosie Read says:

    Now, I know some people immediately distrust any sort of re-telling of Austen but I honestly think the books have their place. While I understand part of the appeal of Austen is the richness of language and the immersion in the historical era, sometimes you do just want the story and I've known many people who have read a modern version of Austen and only been then tempted to read the original. With that in mind, I thought I'd give Emma: a Latter-Day Tale a go.Sharper minds amongst you may have [...]

    Emma has everything planned out. She's going to become a life coach and help everyone with her fab advice. She just needs someone to help. Emma finds that person in the new girl in their ward, Harri. Soon Emma has taken Harri under her wing and is ready to find Harri someone to love. Emma's best friend (and her sister's brother-in-law) Justin doesn't think this is a great idea though. Emma will struggle some though when she discovers her help has been less than helpful. If that's not enough to d [...]

  • Frk. Hyms says:

    I really liked Emma by Jane Austen and I dived into this version of Emma, hoping that the modern twist added something to the story. Unfortunately, it didn’t. At all. I actually ended up hating this.I love Emma in the original version – she is selfish and self-absorbed and a bit stupid at times, but she is written so beautifully that I couldn’t dislike her. I saw myself in her (…even though that may not be a good thing…) and I adored reading about her struggles and her growth. This ver [...]

  • Kathryn Cooper says:

    Reviewed onKathryn Cooper Writes I’ve read all of Jane Austen’s books and recommend them to all romance lovers. The language can be hard to follow and a little slow at times, but I love the subtle comedy in her stories. Emma is my least favorite story because she kind of annoys me. Do you want to know why I read Emma and Emma retellings? There’s one word . . . KNIGHTLEY! He is my favorite, kind, smart, noble, and handsome.Emma in Emma: A Latter-day Tale is training to become a life coach u [...]

  • karmaforlifechick says:

    Emma’s all caught up in studying to be a life coach and in her spare time match making, and since it’s worked with her best girl friend, she is on the lookout to do some more “good deeds” and she is using all her other friends to practice on. I have to admit this story was slow to begin and it was hard for me to keep going. I think Emma was lonely and she was looking to fill her time to fill a void that she did noteven know existed. Around the middle of the book things started to get a b [...]

Harri has black hair and always wears baggy clothes, she definitely needs a make over and a boyfriend. And Emma has the perfect candidate for her boyfriend too, Phil Elton, he's just got to be look [...]

    It's been such a long time since I read EMMA, that I can't deny that CLUELESS is probably more fresh in my memory. Even from what I remember, though, EMMA: A LATTER-DAY TALE is a cute, fun, modern adaptation that takes place in a slightly new environment -- that of a twenty-something young Mormon.If you know the basic plot of EMMA (or CLUELESS), then the premise will be familiar enough to you. In this novel, Emma is training to be a life coach -- so, she has no shortage of advice for those aroun [...]

  • Stacy Sabala says:

    Book Review- Emma: A Latter-day Tale by Rebecca H. JamisonI am a huge fan of Jane Austin and love the story of Emma. So when I came across this book, I was excited to read the author’s adaptation to modern day life. It was fun to read her version of the story. I knew basically what would happen and who ended up with whom, but the journey in how they got there was fun. The parallels to Jane Austin were obvious which I liked. The author didn’t try to change the story in any way but brought the [...]

  • Lori says:

    This story follows the Jane Austen story line of Emma with a few subtle changes. These changes include names and a twist with the latter day values and morals. Emma is bent on matchmaking after successfully helping her Aunt Tanya marry. She finds Harri, short for Harriet, to be her first project for giving a makeover and a boost in finding her perfect soul mate. Like the Jane Austen version, the wrong man is picked and Emma spirals out of control on the decisions she makes in trying to influence [...]

  • Carrie Lahain says:

    While I am not a member of the LDS church, I am an Austen fan and an omnivorous reader. So the religious slant of this book did not bother me in any way. I actually enjoyed getting an inside view of life in an LDS community and learning how Mormons really aren't so different from other people.As a re-telling of EMMA, this book stays true to the original in a very natural way. There's no sense that the author is manipulating or forcing her plot in an effort to provide Austen lovers with a recogni [...]

  • Aimee (Getting Your Read On) says:

    This is an LDS fiction book and retelling of the classic, Emma (which I love, btw). Jane Austen is one of my very favorite's. I love modern day re-tellings of old classics.One thing that I loved was knowing basically how the story would unfold but wondering how the author would go about it in the world of today. I guess that's what makes re-tellings great.Modern day Emma was endearing even though her many mistakes. Her intentions are good but things just always seem to go wrong because Emma does [...]

  • Jessica says:

    2thepointbooksJane Austen fan fiction goes Mormon!This novel follows the plot almost exactly of Austen’s much-loved tale Emma, but with Mormon lingo, doctrine and spirituality. Uplifting and squeaky clean, this book would feel right at home between the “Book of Mormon” and “Pride and Prejudice.”I’ve read some Austen fan fiction and have been less than impressed with most. This adaptation is an easy, light read – totally predictable, but everyone knows how the original Emma ends, so [...]

  • Julie says:

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I read Emma: A Latter-Day Tale by Rebecca Jamison. I love Jane Austen and have found very few modern retellings of her stories that I've liked. This one is a retelling of her story, Emma, and it has an LDS angle to it, which was fun. We meet Emma who wants to be a life coach, but until she's certified, she just works on a new girl that's moved into the neighborhood to be a nanny. Harriet has lost weight and moved to a new place and needs friends and help overcom [...]

  • Julie Ford says:

    A sweet story, well written and fun, Emma will have you smiling cover to cover. I’ve never read Jane Austen’s version of this tale but I am familiar with the premise, and I love that Jamison made Emma an aspiring life coach. Only it doesn’t take long for Emma to learn that meddling in the lives of others based on her own misguided assumptions, not to mention, scant training, can quickly turn disastrous. Questioning her ability to finish any one goal she’s set for herself, much less achie [...]

  • Lauren Farnsworth says:

    While I consider myself to be a massive Jane Austen fan, "Emma" was always my least favorite of her books. The character of Emma always vaguely annoyed me with her constant attitude of superiority and incessant meddling. Given that, it's a marvelous accomplishment that I enjoyed this book despite the fact that it was based on the original "Emma." I really admired Jamison's ability to weave the original storyline into a modern-day setting, something I know from personal experience is very difficu [...]

  • R says:

    This wasn't a bad book, but it is very LDS and you have to be a bit prepared for that aspect. The Austen story of Emma is very much there and is really cute, and yet I really found myself hating her friend Harri (the one that Emma takes under her wing to help). Rather than seeing her as this girl that needs Emma's help, I saw her as this spineless girl that had way too many issues that needed to stand up to Emma and tell her to butt out. It was an interesting emotion to feel as I read it!Justin [...]
