  • £27.99

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!

Not wishing to cause a scandal within the Joneses' household, Emma chooses to make a clean break from her old life and takes a train to the sea. As chance would have it, Emma finds herself sharing a car with another maid, who serves at a large manor in the country. A big house bustling with servants seems an ideal place at which to move forward after losing her mistress and leaving her love back in London. Learning the precise dance of domestic service in her new environment is a welcome challenge, but how long can hard work divert Emma's mind from the longing of her heart?

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!
