Stacy Tanu dan John Edward,

berencana melangsungkan pesta pernikahan.

Selain mengundang 400 tamu,

juga enam orang yang mempunyai hubungan sangat spesial

dengan kedua mempelai.

Mereka adalah Dina, Ben, Lyla, Sonia, Edo, dan James.

Beberapa minggu menjelang pernikahan itu,

masalah demi masalah silih berganti menghampiri mereka.

Dapatkah mereka bergabung dengan tamu undangan lain

untuk merayakan pesta pernikahan Stacy dan John?

Berbagai kisah yang terjadi sebelum pernikahan Stacy Tanu dan John Edward tentang 6 orang dengan sudut pandang pertama, sehingga pembaca dengan mudah menyelami kejadian demi kejadian yang di alami tiap tokoh. Sebenarnya bisa di bilang kalau novel ini seperti kumpulan cerita Stacy, John, dan 6 orang spesial.

Novel di mulai dengan Stacy dan John yang sedang menentukan tamu untuk pernikahan mereka, sampai Stacy mengusulkan mengundang mantan pacar mereka Ben dan Dina. Tentu saja John kurang senang mendengar usul itu karena tidak mau membuka luka lama sampai akhirinya John setuju.

Dina, mantan pacar John yang sedang berada di Bali. Di sini di ceritakan tentang penyelasan yang selalu datang terlambat, mencintai orang yang salah, pergulatan batinnya dan jatuh di kesalahan yang sama hanya karena terbuai dengan kata-kata manis. Bisa kita rasakan semua perasaan yang di rasakan Dina, bagaimana dia diangkat tinggi-tinggi ,dijatuhkan dan dibuang hanya karena satu kata. CINTA

Selanjutnya, Ben mantan pacar stacy yang berada di pekanbaru yang akhirnya menemukan tambatan hatinya tapi tidak berlangsung dengan lancar dikarenakan perbedaan, kesempurnaan, dan takut mengecewaka. Pertemuan keduanya juga tidak berlangsung dengan normal seperti pasangan lainnya tapi cerita ini mempunyai akhir yang bahagia.

Tamu spesial yang ketiga bernama Lyla di Solo yang terluka saat sedang berpetualang, yang bertemu dengan cinta dan di kecewakan oleh cinta dan pertemanan yang menjadi hubungan percintaan yang tak terduga.

Masa lalu yang sedih sekaligus bahagia saat dikenang, kesalahpahaman yang terjadi antara Sonia dan Edo, Edo yang belum menemukan waktu yang tepat untuk mengatakan sejujurnya. Kesalahan yang dilakukan Andi membuat masa depan yang cerah menjadi gelap, masalah yang datang bergulir-gulir di hidup Sonia dan keterlambatan Edo memberitahukan kebenaran yang membuat semua menjadi kacau.

“Aku minta maaf untuk semua kepahitan yang terjadi dalam rumah tangga kita. Aku minta maaf jika kita saling menyakiti. Dan.. aku memaafkanmu.“ –Sonia-

Kesukaan Sonia terhadap astronomi membawanya bertemu dengan Edo yang ternyata adalah temen kakaknya, John. Hubungan mereka pun berjalan lancar, mereka saling bertemua dan jalan bareng. Hingga akhirnya Edo mendapat izin bekerja di Batam sebagai dokter dan komunikasi mereka pun terputus. Lima bulan pun berlalu dan semuanya pun terlambat, hanya mengisakan penyesalan yang begitu mendalam.

Datangnya Maria mengubah hidup James, mengingatkannya tentang masa lalu yang belum usai. Mereka pun bertemu di panti rehabilitas milik James. Awalnya gadis itu suka menyendiri dan keras kepala, sampai akhirnya James menceritakan tentang perjuangan hidup yang tidak gampang. Dan itulah cahaya yang menerangkan gelap dan sunyi kehidupan yang dialaminya.

Cerita ini selain tentang kisah cinta dari sudut pandang berbeda yang ternyata juga menerapkan konsep keliling Indonesia. Ada 6 kota yang diceritakan disini tentang makanan dan tempat wisata yang paling sering di kunjungi. Cover dan bookmark juga bagus seperti batik. Ada kalimat yang keren banget di situ.

Hidup itu berawal dari huruf B dan berakhir dengan huruf D. Huruf B artinya Birth dan D artinya Death. Tapi di antara huruf B dan D ada huruf C, yang artinya Choice. Artinya hidup selalu menawarkan pilihan.

–You Are Invited-

Cerita burung Rajawalinya juga memberikan pelajaran buat kita yaitu kalau hidup banyak pilihan kalau ingin berhasil kita harus berusaha dan menahan cobaan yang berat. Menjadi burung rajawal tidaklah mudah dia harus melewati berbagai cobaan dalam hidup agar hidupnya lebih panjang.

Disini juga ada beberapa typo seperti Itu!Aneh (hlm. 21) , Lain.Princille (hlm. 77), Longga (hlm. 183). Selain itu dalam segi bahasa kurang membuat pembaca menarik jadi kurang terasa seperti di kota tersebut. Tapi secara keseluruhan inti ceritanya sudah bagus banget. Kalau di beri rating itu kira-kira 7 dari 10.
