Acclaimed creator Kaoru Mori's tale of life on the
nineteenth-century Silk Road continues. Pariya's budding romance with Umar is
off to a rough start due to her brash personality and lack of confidence. But if
she can't figure out how to say what she wants with words, then perhaps the old
adage is true--the way to a man's heart is through his stomach!Crafted in
painstaking detail, Ms. Mori's pen breathes life into the scenery and
architecture of the period in this heart-warming, slice-of-life tale that is at
once wholly exotic, yet familiar and accessible through the everyday lives of
the characters she has created.
Kaoru Mori's previous series, Emma, about a maid and a gentleman in Victorian England, has been lauded by Library Journal 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.
