Summary

Summary

(Volume 1)
Acclaimed creator Kaoru Mori (Emma, Shirley) brings the nineteenth-century Silk Road to lavish life, chronicling the story of Amir Halgal, a young woman from a nomadic tribe betrothed to a twelve-year-old boy eight years her junior. Coping with cultural differences, blossoming feelings for her new husband, and expectations from both her adoptive and birth families, Amir strives to find her role as she settles into a new life and a new home in a society quick to define that role for her.


Author Notes

Kaoru Mori's previous series, Emma , about a maid and a gentleman in Victorian England, has been lauded by Library Journa l and was named to the YALSA Great Graphic Novels list. A Bride's Story has only broadened her fan base in Japan and the U.S. with its elegant style and delicate story.

Booklist Review

The time has come for the wedding of Laila and Leily, the high-spirited twins from volume 4 of Mori's series about life on the nineteenth-century Silk Road. Older teens, even though it's unlikely they'll be getting married themselves, will understand the twins' nervousness about their life-changing event, and romance fans will appreciate the accepting natures of their young grooms. The last story of the book returns to Amir, the original bride of the series, and her developing feelings for her still very young groom. New readers will want to at least go back to volume 4, but established fans will be thrilled at the continuing beauty of Mori's stunningly illustrated black-and-white comics.--Wildsmith, Snow Copyright 2010 Booklist
