The results for our April Old School Wednesdays Readalong are in!
After a week of voting, the book we will be reading is A Bride’s Story by Kaoru Mori.
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.
The readalong will happen on April 29, when we will post our joint review of the book and open the floor for discussion and linkage to your posts/reviews.
More awesome news – this book is widely available!
