Lili-san by Dorothy Kouwenberg


Hi Everyone!

Wow this week has been pretty exhausting. Even right now I feel super tired but I must write this post because I just finished to re-read this wonderful book and I feel pretty happy to share my feelings with you. This book is really special to me for several reasons. But sincerely I should write this review a long time  ago. But like I finished to read this wonderful baby today I decided that this must be the day for ublish the review. This book is a very peaceful and relaxing book that treats first about friends and loyalty and has place in that period after the World War II and probably is the first book that I read situated in that period.

This book was very relaxing for me and even when I started this book several years ago. Like I just started to re-read two days ago. I feel I missed a lot of stuff and many things were a surprise again for me. Why this book is som important to me? Because has been the first book where I collaborate, but not like writer.

About this book~

REVIEW

I am not sure If this could be called a review because today I want share my feelings about this book. First I have this amazing main character called Lili Katsuki that is a really wonderful person that is working in this place that is like a base of American soldiers in Japan after WWII and is very interesting because this is not my type of book but the narrative was so sweet and involving and we start to see how she interacts with her only friend there for the start of this book.

The main character is a person that really cares about others and really love it helps to others from the bottom of her heart and that is kind, sweet and she is selfless. Now during the book I started how this bilingual woman like is Lili-san is working at an japanese hospital translating important documents. And how even when her past is pretty sad due the death of her parents during the the WWII she is super strong abd very sweet. I feel a pretty nostalgical to this point because the author of this lovely book that was Dorothy Kouwenberg passed away two years ago and I don´t know how to express my feeling after finish this lovely story about love and friendship. And I feel touched again for this book. 

RATING



Like I mentioned before I had the privilege to cooperate with the author of this amazing book. I want mention that this book was a personal local project of the author but in anyway I feel blessed because I am a book lover and i had the ooportunity to cooperate. 
You can read other book from this amazing author.


This wonderful author passed away two years ago. And for that reason I can write with property about that the books are the proof that me magic exists.


I was contacted several years ago for use one the photos from one of my reviews for the edition for the cover. And I felt so honoured that day. I feel so happy now like that day because this book is really lovely. The author was working in this personal project and I was contacted by the Cover Designer and I feel really blessed. My only request was the credit to me and one paperback. I received the paperback several months later.

So yeah... I am the girl on the Cover~(^○^)オ
The designer used one of my photos for design the cover.♡


Here one of my favorite quotes from this beautiful book:

"Loss and dissapointment are inevitables, Lili-san. Accept both with grace"

  35. How interesting for the book to focus on the period of time after World War II, when most tend to only cover the wars themselves. Also, how lovely for the author to have used your photo on the cover!
