   schema:description "Volume 3: "Despite each resolving to put the other from their minds, Emma and William's unexpected meeting has rekindled the embers of their love for each other. Though with William engaged to the daughter of a viscount--an ideal match in society's view--the two will face unbending opposition and many difficult decisions if they wish to pursue a future together. Mrs. Trollop is sympathetic to their plight, but even though she is fond of Emma and wishes every happiness for her son, she knows firsthand how unforgiving the upper classes can be to those who do not adhere to their standards ..."--Publisher's description."@en ;
   schema:description "Volume 5: "This collection gathers the stories of those whose lives have touched Emma and William as the two take strides toward a future they can share together. From the daily trials of the Mölders family and staff to the beginning of William's unusual friendship with Hakim, these chapters serve to flesh out the world of Emma. When this volume draws to a close, will the maid and the gentleman have become simply the Joneses? The moment of truth arrives in the final volume of Kaoru Mori's award-winning Emma."--Publisher's description."@en ;
   schema:description "Volume 4: "With the postmark of Emma's last letter--and his heart--guiding him, William makes a bold journey across the Atlantic to begin his search for Emma in the town of Burnley in the United States. Even if he finds her among the hundreds of new arrivals from England, the life ahead of them will not be an easy one. The broken engagement of the Viscount's daughter has set him--and, through him, all of London society--against the Joneses, and it will take time to rebuild those business and social relationships. Even more difficult will be convincing society that Emma is worthy to join their ranks despite her humble origins. With dogged persistence, patience, and a little help from Mrs. Mölders, Emma and William aim to carve out a place in this world where their love can thrive at last!"--Publisher's description."@en ;
   schema:description "Volume 1: "Calling upon his former governess, William Jones, gentleman, is startled when his knock is answered by an uncommonly beautiful servant, the soft-spoken Emma. Throughout his visit, William's eyes drift to the maid whenever she enters the room, and he contrives to meet Emma socially as she goes about her errands. But London society is a web of strict codes and divisions. For the son of a wealthy merchant, seeking out a working-class girl is simply not done! William's father plans for his son to marry into the peerage and elevate the Jones family to greater heights, but although William says and does what is expected of him, he longs only for Emma's company ..."--Publisher's description."@en ;
   schema:description "Volume 2: "Not wishing to cause a scandal within the Joneses' household, Emma chooses to make a clean break from her old life and takes a train to the sea. As chance would have it, Emma finds herself sharing a car with another maid, one who serves at a large manor in the country. A big house bustling with servants seems an ideal place in which to move forward after losing her mistress and leaving her love back in London. Learning the precise dance of domestic service in her new environment is a welcome challenge, but how long can hard work divert Emma's mind from the longing of her heart?"--Publisher's description."@en ;
