John Mullan's 10 of the Best Governesses includes Miss Taylor in Emma

Love John Mullan's choices of ten best governesses, since Miss Taylor made first choice. And correctly so. Do you agree?
Johdi May as Anne Taylor, Emma, 2009

Emma by Jane Austen Miss Taylor, governess for many years to the headstrong Miss Woodhouse, is contemplating her future as a paid companion when, well into her 30s, she gets a lucky break. An affluent local widower runs to fetch her an umbrella when he meets her in the rain, and soon she becomes Mrs Weston.
