內容簡介


站在進退維谷的生命十字路口  唯有真正放手才能海闊天空
如果你喜歡威廉波依德的《最後的任務》(Restless),那麼你絕不能錯過這部同樣以歷史轉折點作為故事發展背景的小說。時值1993年的德國,那座阻隔東西德28載的柏林圍牆早已頹圮。30歲的麥克是個學校老師,而他的世界正走向分崩離析。他的妻子將他掃地出門;他因被視作前社會主義黨餘孽而遭西德的學校校長開除,但即便如此,他仍無法拋開過去形塑他的殘敗政權所遺留下的歷史包袱。麥克於是返回老家照顧年邁的母親,並從牧師布魯克的口中,輾轉得知關於父親的一切,但這趟黑暗的探索旅程卻也讓他驚覺曾經根深蒂固的信念並非牢不可摧。

For readers who were gripped by the world of espionage in William Boyd's Restless, this is a compelling, unforgettable novel that brings to life the very human story behind a momentous turning point in history
In Germany 1993, the Berlin Wall is down, the country is reunified, and 30-year-old school teacher Michael Ritter feels his life is falling apart. His wife has thrown him out, his new West German headmaster has fired him for being a former card-carrying Socialist Party member, and he is still clinging on to the wreckage of the state that shaped him. Disenfranchised and disenchanted, Michael heads home to care for his terminally ill mother. On her deathbed, she urges him to seek out an evangelical priest, Pastor Bruck, and discover the truth about his father. Initially, Michael dismisses her fevered ramblings, but as the days pass he cannot let it go. He eventually finds the priest and is taken on a journey into a past of dark discoveries which shatter everything he's previously believed in.
