米奇‧艾爾邦2019最新著作!

2010年,加勒比海島國海地發生了芮氏7.0的大地震,地震過後死傷慘重,整個國家陷入困境。在地震發生的三天前,一個小女孩Chika出生,逃不過地震重傷國家的慘況,Chika在極度貧窮的環境中長大,直到母親因為難產過世,Chika被送進米奇‧艾爾邦和妻子共同經營的孤兒院中。

當年只有三歲的Chika,一進孤兒院就讓大家留下深刻的印象,勇敢又堅定,雖然只有小小年紀,卻像是帶來了一陣清風,撫慰了其他孩子和老師們。過了兩年,Chika五歲了,命運像是開玩笑似地,又給Chika帶來的一道難題,她被診斷出海地島上無人能醫的絕症。

艾爾邦和妻子不想放棄給Chika,就算機率再小都要想辦法為她尋找可能的治療方法,兩人帶著Chika到了美國和世界其他地方,就算面臨了生死交關的疾病,Chika依舊保持樂觀正向,三人共處的這段時間,讓艾爾邦體會了以愛為基礎的關係,不管發生什麼事,都不會被摧毀。

Bestselling author Mitch Albom returns to nonfiction for the first time in more than a decade in this poignant memoir that celebrates Chika, a young Haitian orphan whose short life would forever change his heart. 

Chika Jeune was born three days before the devastating earthquake that decimated Haiti in 2010. She spent her infancy in a landscape of extreme poverty, and when her mother died giving birth to a baby brother, Chika was brought to The Have Faith Haiti Orphanage that Albom operates in Port Au Prince.

With no children of their own, the forty-plus children who live, play, and go to school at the orphanage have become family to Mitch and his wife, Janine. Chika’s arrival makes a quick impression. Brave and self-assured, even as a three-year-old, she delights the other kids and teachers. But at age five, Chika is suddenly diagnosed with something a doctor there says, “No one in Haiti can help you with.”

Mitch and Janine bring Chika to Detroit, hopeful that American medical care can soon return her to her homeland. Instead, Chika becomes a permanent part of their household, and their lives, as they embark on a two-year, around-the-world journey to find a cure. As Chika’s boundless optimism and humor teach Mitch the joys of caring for a child, he learns that a relationship built on love, no matter what blows it takes, can never be lost.

Told in hindsight, and through illuminating conversations with Chika herself, this is Albom at his most poignant and vulnerable. Chika is a celebration of a girl, her adoptive guardians, and the incredible bond they formed—a devastatingly beautiful portrait of what it means to be a family, regardless of how it is made.
