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.From Booklist:
As Englishman Mr. Smith arrives at the Aral Sea on his journey across Asia, he meets a lively pair of twins who have their minds focused on finding the perfect pair of brothers to marry. Mori’s story, a slice of life on the nineteenth-century Silk Road, no longer focuses solely on Amir and her child groom, but the tale’s romance and beauty never fade. Her characters are vibrant enough to leap off the page, and she shows as much respect for their customs as her character Mr. Smith does. Minor nudity will likely keep this in adult collections, but older teens will enjoy laughing at the marriage-minded twins. Grades 10-12. --Snow Wildsmith
