In the meantime, she will do what she does best: offer guidance to those less wise in the ways of the world than herself. Happily, this summer brings many new faces to Highbury and into the sphere of Emmas not always perfectly felicitous council: Harriet Smith, a naive teachers assistant at the ESL school run by the hippie-ish Mrs. Goddard- Frank Churchill, the attractive stepson of Emmas former governess- and, of course, the perfect Jane Fairfax.
