內容簡介


本書獲選亞馬遜網路書店四月份最佳書籍  作者以詩意的口吻娓娓道出一段撼動人心的戰亂兒女情
時值第二次世界大戰的尾聲,希爾瓦納,一個因戰亂被迫與丈夫分離的女子,帶著她七歲的兒子從波蘭遠赴英國與家人團聚。對亞努斯而言,希爾瓦納不過是一個如幽靈般存在,徒具表象意義的妻子。沒人能料到六年的戰亂分隔所帶來的遺憾竟是比天人永隔更叫人難以撫平的情感撕裂。儘管雙方下定決心從頭開始,但是當過去種種一一浮現之際,戰爭的陰影、亞努斯的背叛以及希爾瓦納誓死隱藏的秘密正一點一滴吞食著兩人僅存的想望。究竟兩人是否能逃脫戰爭帶來的黑暗枷鎖,重新展開新的生活?

In war we sometimes lose ourselves...It is 1946 and Silvana and eight-year-old Aurek board a ship that will take them from Poland to England. Silvana has not seen her husband Janusz in six years, but, they are assured, he has made them a home in Ipswich. However, after living wild in the forests for years, carrying a terrible secret, all Silvana knows is that she and Aurek are survivors. Everything else is lost. While Janusz, a Polish soldier who has criss-crossed Europe during the war, hopes his family will help put his own dark past behind him. But the war and the years apart will always haunt each of them unless they together confront what they were compelled to do to survive.

Amazon Best Books of the Month, April 2011: By the end of World War II, Silvana is a ghost of the wife Janusz once had. She and their 7-year-old son Aurek travel from Poland to England to reunite their family--a family that has been separated for 6 years. That's where 22 Britannia Road, Amanda Hodgkinson's stunning debut novel, begins. As the past unfolds from multiple points of view, it becomes clear that despite their determination to make a fresh start, the hidden secrets of the past threaten to destroy Silvana and Janusz's dreams of becoming a family once again. The irreversible events that passed during their years of separation still linger, including the horrors of war, Janusz's betrayal by a love affair with another woman, and the devastating secret that Silvana will do anything to conceal. Hodgkinson's poetic voice is impossible to forget, and the shocking and hopeful ending of her remarkable historical novel will leave readers reeling--and satisfied.
