Selected as one of YALSA's Great Graphic Novels for Teens in 2008, Kaoru Mori's EMMA, a modern manga classic, brings Victorian England to life in painstaking detail. Now available from Yen Press in deluxe hardcover omnibus editions!

Calling upon his inimitable former governess, young aristocrat William Jones is startled to find his knock answered by a clever, bespectacled maid--Emma. From that moment forward, the two are drawn to each other and slowly but surely grow ever closer. But as the love between Emma and William builds, so too do the obstacles that threaten to keep them apart. For in Victorian London, some things are simply not done, and marrying outside of one's social class just happens to be one such taboo...

With the postmark of Emma's last letter--and his heart--as his sole guide, William makes a bold journey across the Atlantic to begin his search for Emma in the town of Burnley in America. Even if she is found among the hundreds of new arrivals from England, the life ahead of them will not be an easy one. His daughter's broken engagement has set the Viscount and, through him, all of London society against the Joneses, and it will take time for those business and social relationships to be rebuilt. Even more difficult will be convincing society that Emma is worthy to join their ranks, despite her humble origins. With dogged persistence, patience, and a little help from Mrs. Mölders, Emma and William aim to carve out a place in this world where their love can thrive at last!
