內容簡介


那一天,究竟發生了什麼事?
她有辦法在他完全迷失自我之前,重建謀殺案的真相嗎?


音樂老師Ann與Wade婚後住在美國愛達荷州北部的崎嶇山地。然而,他有一段創傷的過去:前妻Jenny因為謀殺女兒而鋃鐺入獄,另一個女兒則就此失蹤,家庭隨之四分五裂……

Ann為了撫慰丈夫的悲痛,試圖拼湊命案的真相,卻發現丈夫開始出現失智的症狀,更不時有暴力傾向。當Wade變得益發不穩定,Ann的自身安危也受到威脅,卻只能靠著Wade零星的破碎記憶與她的想像力,重建謀殺案的真相。與記憶與心智逐漸凋零的丈夫同住,Ann持續被Jenny的鬼魂與過去的悲劇所籠罩,也不禁質疑起自己在整起事件中扮演的角色……

那一天,究竟發生了什麼事?
為什麼Jenny要殺害自己的女兒?
十多年來杳無音訊的另一個女兒,現在究竟在哪裡?
在Wade完全迷失自我前,Ann有辦法了解他的過去嗎?

以多個角色的視角交錯敘述、時空橫跨五十年,讀來有如夢境般的輓歌,以精確的描述與細節,描繪內心與記憶的脆弱,細膩的情感、優美的語言,讓懸疑增添一層文學性。

One hot August day a family drives to a mountain clearing to collect birch wood. Jenny, the mother, is in charge of lopping any small limbs off the logs with a hatchet. Wade, the father, does the stacking. The two daughters, June and May, aged nine and six, drink lemonade, swat away horseflies, bicker, sing snatches of songs as they while away the time.

But then something unimaginably shocking happens, an act so extreme it will scatter the family in every different direction.

In a story told from multiple perspectives and in razor-sharp prose, we gradually learn more about this act, and the way its violence, love and memory reverberate through the life of every character in Idaho.
