Wishful Wednesday #45

Saya akui, saya perlu browsing dulu untuk tahu apa yang bisa masuk ke wish list saya minggu ini. Sedih ya, belakangan saya ngga mengikuti perkembangan dunia buku lokal. Terlalu sibuk dengan buku-buku luar dan timbunan ebook. Mungkin ini pertanda saya butuh berkunjung ke toko buku.

But anyway, ada buku yang belakangan lagi kepingin banget saya baca. If only i could find the ebook, i would already read it now. Since i can’t, for now, I’ll put this book to my wishlist first. 

George Duncan is an American living and working in London.  At forty-eight, he owns a small print shop, is divorced, and lonelier than he realizes.  All of the women with whom he has relationships eventually leave him for being too nice.  But one night he is woken by an astonishing sound—a terrific keening, which is coming from somewhere in his garden.  When he investigates he finds a great white crane, a bird taller than even himself.  It has been shot through the wing with an arrow.  Moved more than he can say, George struggles to take out the arrow from the bird’s wing, saving its life before it flies away into the night sky.

The next morning, a shaken George tries to go about his daily life, retreating to the back of his store and making cuttings from discarded books—a harmless, personal hobby—when through the front door of the shop a woman walks in.  Her name is Kumiko, and she asks George to help her with her own artwork.  George is dumbstruck by her beauty and her enigmatic nature, and begins to fall desperately in love with her.   She seems to hold the potential to change his entire life, if he could only get her to reveal the secret of who she is and why she has brought her artwork to him.

Buku ini masuk wishlist, pertama, karena saya bener-bener kepingin baca ceritanya. How will the story goes? Tapi memang sih, cover versi ini adalah poin tambahannya yang seolah bilang i should get this one.
