Acclaimed creator Kaoru Mori (Emma, Shirley) brings the
nineteenth-century Silk Road to lavish life, chronicling the story of
Amir Halgal, a young woman from a nomadic tribe betrothed to a
twelve-year-old boy eight years her junior. Coping with cultural
differences, blossoming feelings for her new husband, and expectations
from both her adoptive and birth families, Amir strives to find her role
as she settles into a new life and a new home in a society quick to
define that role for her.
