Read in November, 2009

I went into this book blindly. I didn't know a thing about the author or the series and instead mistakingly thought it had something to do with Jane Austin's Emma (yes, even though it has a maid on the cover). Overall, the plot is pretty cliche-"Can love conquer Victorian England's classist society?"--but you can tell Kaoru Mori is really into the period dress and setting and there's some beautiful illustrations throughout. Even so, the story was "okay." The highlight for me was definitely the 3-page afterward: "Gentleman's Fancy: Maids in Black." It's a bizarre look into why the artist was interested in taking on the project and it is HILARIOUS. And bizarre. Bizarrely hilarious.
