Today, among the books’ piles, I found two books and one of them entitled Tilly’s promise.

This book consists of 10 chapters and 87 pages. Its like a short story, a lovely short story.

The book was telling us about stories of Tilly and Harry in the war time (German vs France). When German invaded France, all “army age men” must join the army; one of them was Harry. Harry is a patriotic type and he couldn’t stay do nothing when the country in emergency.

Harry is Tilly’s boyfriend and the war really something for them, because Harry must leave Tilly to be an army and join the war. Before Harry was leaving, they made a promise to each other:

Finally, Harry left the village and Tilly became voluntarily nurse in the camp.

Time goes by and both of them kept their promise; they wrote letter to each other every week. Harry describe the war situation and Tilly shared her experiences as a nurse.

One day, Tilly received a letter from Harry which only consist of one word: sorry.

In the army, Harry was responsible for the front line and he saw some of his friends from the village died; including Tilly’s brother (Georgie). Harry promised to Tilly that he will taking care of Georgie.

When Georgie died, Harry really upset and felt guilty because couldn’t keep the promise to take care of Georgie. The impact: he couldn’t talk or write letter to Tilly. On the other hand, Tilly were waiting every day for Harry’s letter. She kept questioning: why Harry didn’t write her a letter, but he kept writing to his parents every week. After months, Tilly decided to assume that Harry broke his promise (he didn’t love her anymore).

Tilly tried to keep her promise and never look to someone else. She loves Harry still. She promise to love him forever and wait him till the war end.

After months, the war finally end. Tilly went back to the village and she saw Harry and his parents. She felt dissapointed, but she loves Harry. Eventually, she walked to Harry and talked to him. He said sorry to Tilly.

He finally explaining all situation in the war and Tilly really appreaciate it. In fact, they still love each other an still keep the promise. Their life is tough, but they keep their promise.

Actually, by this article, I just wanna share my gratitude to the universe because I got chance to read this book, and the story encouraging me to see thing from better comprehensive perspectives. Somehow, the situasion made someone couldn’t tell; even though he really wanna tell.

For now, I do hope everything goes well, esp. for Bli Mangku who still on duty. Wie, I’m here and still keep my promise 💓

Hari ini di tengah keramaian kota Jakarta, seorang supir gojek berhasil menembus padatnya kota dan menyerahkan bingkisan kepadaku.

Itulah bingkisan buku karya Bli Mangku Danu untukku, yang berjudul Pejati.

Cita-cita membuat buku terbersit sejak tahun 2007, namun di kala itu ku hanya membuatkan Bli Mangku sebuah website berjudul cyberdharma.net dan isudarma.com; kemudian Bli Mangku semakin rajin berbagi karya pemikiran dalam blog-blog yang dikelolanya hingga kini.

Beberapa bulan yang lalu, dia ngasi kejutan bahwa hasil karyanya akhirnya bisa dicetak dengan nuansa masa kini. Wow…. wie keren… tak sabar ku ingin memiliki hasil karyanya wie danu.

Menurutku, buku ini merupakan buku kebutuhan sehari-hari Ibu Rumah Tangga yang beragama Hindu. Nuansa buku yang indah, nyaman dibaca, penggunaan kata yang mudah dipahami, gambar2 yang menarik, dan flow penulisan yang apik membuat buku ini mudah dipelajari.

Berdasarkan review yang aku lakukan, ada beberapa point yang bisa aku share a.l:

  1. Content sederhana, namun esensial
  2. Pilihan warna cover yang lembut membuat mata nyaman dan nuansa balinese art terasa kental; namun modern. Istilah kami berdua: local yg global
  3. Pilihan font yang bagus shg tidak terkesan kaku; namun flexible and classy and modern
  4. Flow content runut sehingga mudah dipahami
  5. Bahan buku sangat bagus dan setara dengan buku2 majalah interior yg di Gramedia
  6. Gambar dan foto yang disajikan dalam content menunjukan semangat kolaborasi, berbagi, dan kesederhanaan
  7. Short biography penulis di halaman akhir sudah ringkes dan represent the must known things about writer
  8. Ukuran buku yg tidak terlalu besar dan tidak terlalu kecil, pas di tas ibu2… pas d tas gendong ku, tas kipling kecil orange 😊
  9. Overall nuansa eksklusif terasa sekali

Wie, I do really proud of you 🤗🥰

Berikut adalah bbrp foto bukunya:

Dan berikut adalah foto pembeli pertama… sohib sejawat Putu Adi. Dia membelikan buku ini untuk istrinya yang tercinta. Matur suksma Adi 🙏🙏🙂
