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
About the Author
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.

Mischievous and resourceful, the twins save Mr Smith from drowning and bring him to their village as a 'doctor'. It is a ploy of sorts as it was meant to bring possible suitors to the village for the girls to inspect as they believe their father isn't doing enough to find them husbands.
The plot seems very conventional and even backwards but the time period and setting suit the story as there is nothing meek or quiet in Leily, Laila, their mother and her friends. They are bold and strong in their own ways.
It is goofy fun and the artwork, as per usual, is impeccable.
All that said, my favorite chapter is before the twins's story starts as the ongoing story of the outspoken, unique Pariya meets her own possible match. There is something engaging about Pariya, who is strong willed yet finds herself clumsy in social situations, and her struggle to find her role in her village. So to see her in any situation is always intriguing.
