with b/w illustrations and third colour: red

Illustrators Carla Miller & Isabelle Metzen
Historical Romance
128 pages, from age of 13 years


Graphic novel or narrative? Both! – The highlight for fans of dark romance.

A story full of emotion and detailed-packed pictures.

It is probably the 19th century and the place is England. An old manor house huddled in the shadow of the woods. Cathy, who possesses little more than a small bundle of belongings and a purple ribbon in her hair, applies for the job as maid. It is rumoured amongst staff there that the attractive young Count William is pleasure-loving and unpredictable, but Cathy finds out that he is really fatally ill and because of this, he lives every day to the full as if it were his last. The two are attracted to each other; they both have their own view of the world. But the enigmatic young count and a young girl with a pure heart? They are well of kindred spirit and yet so different – this cannot come to a good ending.


Story alternates between atmospheric narrative passages and graphic novel.
