A Bride's Story Vol 6 by Kaoru Mori

Somewhat less slice of life. . .

Opens with Karluk's wanting for Amir to no longer embroider his clothes -- which is putting charms on it for protection, as one does for children. A slice-of-life drama ensues.

But then, Amir's family can no longer find grazing for their horse herds because they could not replace the dead bride, and they plot with the Badan against the village. It involves brotherly love, the question of obeying a father, what the Russians are plotting, defensive issues, and more.
