內容簡介


當種族的敏感議題被攤在陽光下……
人心的那一道牆,該如何跨越?


《紐約時報》暢銷榜冠軍作家、《姊姊的守護者》作者茱迪.皮考特最新力作!

「如果我沒辦法做偉大的事,我可以用偉大的方式做小事。」
--金恩博士

(“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.”
 –Dr. Martin Luther King)


優秀的資深產房護士Ruth在值班期間,被持白人優越主義的夫婦要求離開護理團隊,因為他們不希望非裔美國人Ruth碰觸他們的嬰兒。到了隔天,當嬰兒心臟病發作時,育兒室卻只有Ruth一人。在執行心肺復甦術前,她遲疑了。悲劇從此降臨。

悲痛不已的爸爸Turk,對Ruth提出告訴,公設辯護人是白人律師Kennedy。她主張將焦點放在醫療與法律層面,爭取無罪釋放。但她真的有辦法忽略最顯而易見的種族議題嗎?單親媽媽Ruth對律師的建議感到無比掙扎,在生活幾乎天翻地覆之際,仍要盡量保持家庭的完整。她與Kennedy有辦法互相理解、建立信任嗎?

當故事以被告Ruth、原告Turk與辯護人Kennedy的敘事角度交錯進行,案發當時的真相逐漸還原,也揭開不同立場的三人,內心最深處的真實想法。他們被迫質疑與重新思考定義人生的價值觀,發現也許自己一直以來所秉持的看法,可能充滿偏見……

本書以深刻見解,探討微妙且爭議的種族議題,也有對於醫病關係與法律的討論,激發讀者深入思考。

To Kill a Mockingbird for the 21st Century' Real Reader Review

When a newborn baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father.

What the nurse, her lawyer and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not.

Small Great Things is about prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us.

It is about opening your eyes.
