Tess and Emma

Reading Emma by Jane Austen and Tess of the D'urbervilles by Thomas Hardy for back to back Friday and Monday book groups was both overwhelming and insightful. The paperback copies I was reading were the exact same length, and both Emma and Tess take a lot of responsibility for their families, but that is where the similarities between these books (and these women) ended.
Both inspired good discussions though!

Emma - 449 pages
Tess - 449 pages
