    Sweet Story with beautiful, intricate art.

    Nothing much happens in volume one, but that's fine. It's a great cultural story which depicts much of everyday life (the building of houses, the herding and milking of goats, the making of clothes) in Central Asia. All the characters are likeable.

    The art is wonderfully detailed and the book is worth buying just for the art.

    I Also Recommend:

    Mori-sensei fan, or not, manga fans need to check out this manga! Highly recommended.

    I was already a fan of Mori-sensei's work--I own all of the Emma manga and the two box set anime collections released by Right Stuf International--so I was very excited for this manga to come out. What a beautiful manga! Everything I loved about Emma is what I love about this manga: the art; the detail;, the accuracy in depiction of the characters, country, and dress; and the engaging and heart-warming story.

    If you're a fan of Emma, you'll love this one too. If you've never read either, both series are wonderful, and I highly recommend them. I'm already in love with A Bride's Story and can't wait for the next volume to come out.

    i am so in love with this. first off, its an age gap romance, sorta. be warned.
    otherwise, its a great story and the main couple are not all ways the focus. art is wonderful, and the world building is great.
     the turn of the century era central asia is a great back drop for some one who never been out side of USA.

    Brilliant. Simply brilliant. Set on the Silk Road (in what would later become Uzbekistan), "A Bride's Story" is a slice of life series about an unusual marriage: a twenty-year-old woman and a twelve-year-old boy, and how their relationship grows. There are other plot threads interwoven into the main story: the lives of their families, the other villagers, and an English traveler, Dr. Smith, who is wandering through Asia. Author/illustrator Kaoru Mori fashions a wonderful series, with humor, wit and great heart. The storyline is slow, but wonderful character development await the patient reader. The artwork is just incredible. I cannot recommend this series enough. Bravo to Ms. Mori!

    This is my favorite book of all time and i cannot tell you how thrilled i am that i can actually own it and support Mori Sensei! The book itself has one of the most unique plot lines i've ever seen and the art is just gorgeous in every aspect. For those saying its slow, its called DEVELOPMENT. theres no was its going to progress like a regular romance when the guy is twelve, but you can gradually see their feelings build up for each other in ways that are just plain cute. Completely worth your money, would highly recomend it to anybody in the age range specified or older. While it is not an explicit book at all, the plot is very mature and younger audiences would not enjoy it very much i think.

    Ponodrous and Insipid

    I tried to like this title but Mori's enchantment with the pain stakeing minutia of Eurasian and Trukic culture is downright soporific. It left me begging for something to happen and it did'nt and the overall story has all the depth of an Orientalist water color.
