Emma, manga by Kaoru Mori. Volume 1 of 10.

Emma is a young woman who works as a maid for a retired governess. William is the oldest son of a well-to-do merchant and was once the governess’ charge. This all takes place in 19th century London, so Emma and William’s love has class obstacles to overcome.

I don’t usually go for love stories, but this one worked for me. It’s slow paced, in a good way, and the characters are interesting. The drawings are full of historical detail that really helps the story. I’m looking forward to reading the other nine books.
