Written and illustrated by Kaoru Mori
CMX. Further exploring the world of maids in English society which she portrayed in EMMA, Kaoru Mori moves slightly forward in time—from Victorian to Edwardian England. When Miss Bennett gets too busy running the pub she inherited, she decides that she needs some help at home. She posts a notice for a maid and young Shirley Madison replies. Shirley can clean and cook as well as anyone – even if she’s only 13 years old! As readers have come to expect from creator Kaoru Mori, this one volume collection of short stories is filled with rich period detail, sympathetic characters, and moving stories.
