For today’s WoW I got a book that is already out. It is a manga even, I can’t remember if I ever featured one before. I just tried the first chapter online, and I fell in love with the art (though it was to be expected given it is Kaori Mori and I loved her earlier works), but also with the characters (Amira, the group she is with). I just flew through the first chapter, before I knew it the chapter was over and I was left with wanting more + finding out what would happen in the next chapter! Hopefully I can purchase the book soon, or maybe I will just hope I will get it as a Christmas present next month. It all depends if I want to buy the English edition (11 euro) or the German version (7 euro).
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.
