Today during their AnimeFest 2017 Panel Sekai Project announced they would be publishing Ebi-Hime’s latest work Blackberry Honey. Set in the mid-19th century this is a story about maids, ghost stories, music, and unexpected romance. Lorina Waugh was fired from her job as maid unexpectedly, she takes the first job she can find. This job however is in a bleak home known as Bly. This place is certainly not hospitable, as her peers and her new master are rude nasty people. She is only shown kindness by Taohua, whom is suspected to be a witch. She soon finds herself under this older woman’s spell.
Set in England during the mid-19th century, Blackberry Honey is a story about maids, ghost stories, music, and unexpected romance.
When Lorina Waugh is fired from her job as a maid, she takes the first new position she can find – even if it’s at the bleak and dreary home known as Bly. Lorina hates it immediately – her peers are rude, and her new master is just as bad. The only one who shows her an ounce of kindness is the mysterious Taohua. Taohua has her own quarters and keeps to herself for the most part, with her odd behavior causing others to suspect that she may be a witch.
Lorina knows she should keep her distance from Taohua, and she wants to, most desperately… but maybe there’s a pinch of truth to the stories, because she soon finds herself under the older woman’s spell.
