- Young Bride's Story
Set on the Silk Road that connected Asia with Europe before the modern times. The 1st story is of Amira, a woman skilled in archery and horsemanship, sent to marry Karluk, a boy from another village who is 8 years younger than her. But all is not well, as her village decides to take her back...
The 2nd and further stories feature recurring characters from the 1st story as well as new characters, natural landscapes, and tales that revolve around marriage and the culture in the 19th century east of the Caspian Sea in what is now Uzbekistan.
Acclaimed creator Kaoru Mori (Emma, Shirley) brings the nineteenth-century Silk Road to breath-taking 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.
