Wishful Wednesday #14

wishful-wednesdayFyuh, tidak terasa sudah Rabu terakhir di bulan Juli 2013, dan artinya ini saatnya memasukkan buku-buku impian ke dalam Wishful Wednesday. Nah, buku yang aku masukkan kali ini adalah…

17407748The Longest Ride
by: Nicholas Sparks

Ira Levinson is in trouble. At ninety-one years old, in poor health and alone in the world, he finds himself stranded on an isolated embankment after a car crash. Suffering multiple injuries, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes and comes into focus beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together – how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families. Ira knows that Ruth can’t possibly be in the car with him, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that defined their marriage.
A few miles away, at a local rodeo, a Wake Forest College senior’s life is about to change. Recovering from a recent break-up, Sophia Danko meets a young cowboy named Luke, who bears little resemblance to the privileged frat boys she has encountered at school. Through Luke, Sophia is introduced to a world in which the stakes of survival and success, ruin and reward — even life and death – loom large in everyday life. As she and Luke fall in love, Sophia finds herself imagining a future far removed from her plans — a future that Luke has the power to rewrite . . . if the secret he’s keeping doesn’t destroy it first.
Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

Terimakasih untuk Mas Tezar yangsudah merekomendasikan buku ini kepadaku melalui goodreads. Walaupun beberapa saat lalu aku sudah tahu bahwa Nicholas Sparks menerbitkan buku di tahun 2013, namun belum sempat terpikir untuk memasukkannya ke dalam meme Wishful Wednesday-ku. Nah, karena semalam kebetulan aku baru membuka goodreads dan menemukan rekomendasi ini, langsung saja kujadikan buku dengan kover bertema western ini sebagai WW #14-ku karena mengoleksi buku-buku karya the tearjerker writer ini merupakan salah satu guilty plreasure-ku #oops😀.

Nah, mari bergabung dengan para penimbun buku yang selalu berandai-andai di hari rabu🙂
