In Victorian-era England, a young girl is rescued from a life of destitution and raised to become a proper British maid. Emma meets William, the eldest son of a wealthy family, and immediately falls in love with him. William shares her feelings, but the strict rules of their society prevent their relationship from ever coming out in the open. Traditional class distinctions and rich, historical details provide the backdrop for this appealing romance.
Note: Volumes 8-10 are "Emma: Further Tales". They fill in details from the Emma manga, both before and after the events in that storyline.
Each chapter explores the motivations or simply shows a day in the life of a particular character from the story.
Find out about the romance between Doug and Kelly in their early days, or follow the adventures of Eleanor as she overcomes her heartache and begins to live again, or visit with Tasha and her family on her day off.

Likable tale of forbidden love set in a surprisingly well-presented Victorian England. Some interesting characters with a decent plot and pace makes this a good read. The art is clean and neat. There's a faint tinge of nostalgia and melancholy which i can't quite put my finger on, which is a plus in my books.
Oh yeah...Hakim is such an endearing character

Wonderful plot, good pace, art is not quite suited to my taste yet seems to go perfectly with the story. The only reason I'm giving it a nine and not a ten is because of it's ending. I feel that just when the real conflict had begun, the story was put to a stop. But I'm not telling you any more. Read it and find out for yourselves. Caution though, it's probably not for readers who want unrealistic, over the top, fluffy shoujo romance. =|
this is a good love story, but it was boring and for some reason it always made me close my pc and go to bed...
Definitely recommended series!
The artwork can be seen as a bit unusual at first, but it's unique and improves so don't let that stop anyone from reading!... Also the plot is just so captivating, whether it be romance or overcoming the difference in social classes, or just the industrialization is general. It's a nice read and definitely recommended.~
wow this manga was very well done, it's been a while since i've been drawn into characters so much as this one. Emma is certianly unique and something you don't come across often, i'm glad i read it.

A likeable story about a love that was not mean to be.
"...too good to walk by."
A moving story, great characters, a beautiful and convincing setting brought to life by very good artwork. A most pleasant read. What else do you need? Don't miss "Emma" - it's obviously too good to walk by.
Feels like YKK
It feels like YKK, only set in the late 19th century and with romance thrown in.
