  • Emma Deprestion - 830 words
    Emma Deprestion Emma's life was greatly influenced by her reading. She lived in a world of fiction rather than in the real world.

Emma discovered romantic novels as a young girl living in a convent. Unable to see the real world or the realities of everyday living, ...
