    Story and art by Kaoru Mori.

    Acclaimed creator Kaoru Mori's tale of life on the 19th-century Silk Road continues. Pariya's budding romance with Umar is off to a rough start due to her brash personality and lack of confidence.

Crafted in painstaking detail, Ms. Mori's pen breathes life into the scenery and architecture of the period in this heart-warming, slice-of-life tale that is at once wholly exotic, yet familiar and accessible through the everyday lives of the characters she has created.
