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.

Top Customer Reviews
** This review contains mild spoilers. **
After an opening chapter featuring the differing ways Amir and Karluk react to the passage of time, the remainder of this collection features the ongoing conflict between Amir's current and former homes. There are no easy answers, hard (and poor) decisions made, and great cost. There is a lot going on here, and everything from the action sequences to more contemplative moments to a wide variety of motivations and agendas is handled with a deft touch and comes across with great impact. The way Mori tells the story is exquisite, making sure the focus is always on the characters' struggle and emotions. There's a timeless quality to the themes of family, power, and growing up addressed, despite the ancient and contrasting setting.
All usual this is the part of the review where I gush about Mori's art. Still jaw-droppingly amazing. In addition to the painstakingly intricate patterns and backgrounds, the large amount of hectic action in this volume is perfectly conveyed and further enhanced by Mori's mastery of facial expressions and body language.
Volume 6 is the most dramatic and intense installment of A Bride's Story yet. As such it has a slightly different feel from previous volumes, but is just as excellent and retains everything at the core that makes this series so phenomenal.
