Roland falls ill for several days, but wakes to a lovely surprise. Not only does he feel better, but he has a handsome new butler waiting on his every need. Roland can’t help but fall in love, and the young Eric can’t help but give in to his master. As Roland continues to recover, he begins to doubt himself and Eric’s affection. Is it genuine, or just part of his job? And when Roland’s wayward wife returns to the estate, will Eric have learn his place as a servant? Or if it is love…can it conquer class, age, and even another marriage?----------Translated by Angela Liu; Edited by Myrrh Deren; Lettered by Maranda Edwards

  Mainly for oyaji lovers
by Foxy Lady Ayame  08/24/2013
The titular story along with the two-part Olive Twig is a gentle one emotionally and interesting sociologically. I was intrigued by how aristocracy arranged their marriages and affairs. I quite liked the fact that although the woman seemed to have some malicious intentions and a not so friendly relationship with the housekeeper, I was proved wrong. She might not be a very good mother, but she didn't go between the servant and her husband. She might have gotten tad jealous, but understands how important it is to have someone who honestly holds you dear by your side.

Besides that I found amusing and enjoyable although nothing exceptionally special the single shoujo-ai story of the anthology, From Nowhere and, its continuation, In The Afternoon. At the end of the book there's another four panel strip that features them and it was quite funny with the seme-uke references. Their story takes place in an all-girls school, which is quite typical, but the protagonists interact nicely and one of them is a mischievious little devil and that makes me like her a lot.

The other two shounen-ai stories (yes, sex is always implied or non-existent) didn't do anything for me but I'm sure that oyaji lovers out there will be really happy to read them. Next To The Teacher is an oneshot about a teacher-student relationship, but years later. We see how the student was influenced by what his teacher said and how things aren't that easy for them in the society. I kinda grimaced at the part where the teacher says he feels lonely even when he's with his lover, but it's a warm loneliness or something abstract and non-sensical like this.

Mailman Of The Forest and The Forest Of Continuous Snow could be read as a parental story of adoption. The old and white-haired spirit of the forest took under his care a human baby boy and took care of it. There's a time skip between the two chapters, but the grown-up (middle-aged?) man still sleeps in the same bed as his stepfather. Kind of creepy if you ask me, but if it's your cup of tea, go for it. To be honest, I found this story boring as nothing particularly exciting happens; that's subjective though.

Half of the book was a nice reading with a charming artstyle, but the other half didn't have me as audience. Take my rating with a pinch of salt.

I could imagine a lot of people liking this. The volume has one "main" story - Sunday's Child following the relationship between the master of the house and his butler, and then a series of one-shots after.

The stories are what I like to call "quietly dramatic". Whatever turmoil or angst is evoked is usually internal and doesn't result in messy social catastrophes. It's always nice to unwind to, though not so much if you're into loud actiony pieces.
