《奇蹟之邦》、《完美家庭》作者Ann Patchett 安‧派契特最新著作!

二次世界大戰結束後,Cyril Conroy靠著一點運氣和投資開始了一個不動產經營事業,帶著家人離開貧窮,他的首次任務是買下位於賓州郊區的一個名為「The Dutch House」的莊園,這個原本是為了給妻子一個驚喜的莊園,卻成了讓家人命運走調的起點。

 

DannyMaeveCyril的一對兒女,卻並沒有受到應有的照護,被繼母掃地出門,這一對姊弟再次回到了父母用盡所有力氣逃離的貧窮,兩人可以依靠著只有彼此,卻也是這個斬不斷的羈絆拯救了兩人,卻也讓未來崎嶇。

 

就算生活是否對他們釋出善意,DannyMaeve卻只有兩人在一起時才覺得自在,那個被提起不僅千次的故事,說起來順口實則緊掐著他們的咽喉,他們忘不了過去,靠著彼此度過難關,但在被迫面對過往那個拋棄他們的人,兩人的關係卻會再次被試探。

Ann Patchett, the New York Times bestselling author of Commonwealth and State of Wonder, returns with her most powerful novel to date: a richly moving story that explores the indelible bond between two siblings, the house of their childhood, and a past that will not let them go.

“'Do you think it’s possible to ever see the past as it actually was?’ I asked my sister. We were sitting in her car, parked in front of the Dutch House in the broad daylight of early summer.”

At the end of the Second World War, Cyril Conroy combines luck and a single canny investment to begin an enormous real estate empire, propelling his family from poverty to enormous wealth. His first order of business is to buy the Dutch House, a lavish estate in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. Meant as a surprise for his wife, the house sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves.

The story is told by Cyril’s son Danny, as he and his older sister, the brilliantly acerbic and self-assured Maeve, are exiled from the house where they grew up by their stepmother. The two wealthy siblings are thrown back into the poverty their parents had escaped from and find that all they have to count on is one another. It is this unshakeable bond between them that both saves their lives and thwarts their futures.
