Summary
A rags-to-riches romance from the creator of Tail of the Moon!

Poor Sumi Kitamura... Her irresponsible older brother Eisuke keeps bringing home orphans for her to take care of even though they can barely afford their own basic needs! Just when Sumi's financial problems become dire, wealthy Soichiro Ashida enters her life with a bizarre proposition: he'll provide her with the money she so desperately needs if she agrees to marry him. But can Sumi fool high society into thinking she's a proper lady? Moreover, is it worth giving up everything for this sham of a marriage?
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Sumi Kitamura has a hard life; irresponsible older brother Eisuke is charming but useless, a compulsive gambler and ladies' man who abandons Sumi to deal with the consequences of his actions. Faced with the growing population of orphaned children Eisuke collects, the debts he runs up, and the angry husbands left in the wake of his romantic affairs, an increasingly desperate Sumi is nearly forced into prostitution before wealthy Soichiro Ashida intervenes; if Sumi will consent to marry him, Soichiro will pay her debts. Out of a sense of duty to those dependent on her, Sumi consents, only to discover her new husband is domineering, emotionally distant, and pursuing an agenda of his own. Ueda's art is competent, but the pace of the plot seems designed to stretch the story out over as many installments as possible. Many of the characters remain enigmas, in particular Soichiro's friend Nozumo, who helped Sumi early in the story and who may or may not be the person who brought Sumi to the desperate Soichiro's attention. Like Ueda's earlier Tail of the Moon, this is a historical romance, this one set in the Meija period of the early 20th century. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
