The official patter:
"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, one who serves at a large manor in the country. A big house bustling with servants seems an ideal place in 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?"

Firstly, Kaoru Mori is amazing. Her detail work, sublime, and her little comics about herself at the end of all her books, hilarious. Emma has been out of print for years in the US, I've been lucky enough to read the first eight in this Edwardian saga only because of a good public library system. Grab these gorgeous hardcover re-prints now people! DO IT!
