內容簡介


《紐約時報》暢銷小說《廚房屋》作者凱薩琳.葛里森(Kathleen Grissom)又一令人屏息的歷史小說。一個黑白混血,隱藏奴隸身分的男人,為了拯救曾誓死保護的小男孩,經歷重重危險回到南方莊園,他可有機會救出小男孩?

「我瞧瞧雙手,看看已是自由之身的我,是否和過去是同一人。萬物皆燦爛(Glory Over Everything)。太陽像黃金一樣穿過樹叢升起,我感覺置身天堂。」- Harriet Tubman (廢奴主義者)

「葛里森抒情的敘事充滿豐富的歷史細節,這本令人難忘的作品可以獨立來看,也可以作為《廚房屋》引人入勝的續集。」-《出版人周刊》(Publishers Weekly)

Jamie Pyke是個黑白混血兒,母親是個黑奴,被莊園主人強暴後生下了Jamie,他的白色皮膚幫助他得以逃至費城,成為一個銀器匠。他在白人社會中優游,甚至成為惡名昭彰的花花公子。沒有人知道,20年前他在維吉尼亞莊園所犯下的罪行,沒有人知道他身上流有黑奴的血,直到有夫之婦Caroline懷了身孕。如果姦情被發現,如果生下來的孩子皮膚黝黑,那麼他的秘密就保不住了!

小男孩Pan是個自由奴隸,Jamie曾受他父親的幫忙。當Jamie聽說Pan被抓回南方莊園時,受良心驅使,也為了逃避在費城欺騙世人的惡果,他回到過去的莊園,找到了Pan。這個小男孩,在女黑奴Sukey的保護下,還能夠在莊園苟活。Jamie在無畏的Sukey的幫忙下,帶著Pan努力地避開追殺他們的人,奮力地穿越北卡羅萊納與維吉尼亞之間險惡的大片沼澤地。他們有可能逃離那片惡地,回到自由的北方嗎?

The latest New York Times bestseller from the author of the beloved book club favorite The Kitchen House is a heart racing story about a man’s treacherous journey through the twists and turns of the Underground Railroad on a mission to save the boy he swore to protect. Glory Over Everything is “gripping…breathless until the end” (Kirkus Reviews).

The year is 1830 and Jamie Pyke, a celebrated silversmith and notorious ladies’ man, is keeping a deadly secret. Passing as a wealthy white aristocrat in Philadelphian society, Jamie is now living a life he could never have imagined years before when he was a runaway slave, son of a southern black slave and her master. But Jamie’s carefully constructed world is threatened when he discovers that his married socialite lover, Caroline, is pregnant and his beloved servant Pan, to whose father Jamie owes his own freedom, has been captured and sold into slavery in the South.

Fleeing the consequences of his deceptions, Jamie embarks on a trip to a North Carolina plantation to save Pan from the life he himself barely escaped as a boy. With the help of a fearless slave, Sukey, who has taken the terrified young boy under her wing, Jamie navigates their way, racing against time and their ruthless pursuers through the Virginia backwoods, the Underground Railroad, and the treacherous Great Dismal Swamp.

“Kathleen Grissom is a first-rate storyteller…she observes with an unwavering but kind eye, and she bestows upon the reader, amid terrible secrets and sin, a gift of mercy: the belief that hope can triumph over hell” (Richmond Times Dispatch). Glory Over Everything is an emotionally rewarding and epic novel “filled with romance, villains, violence, courage, compassion…and suspense.” (Florida Courier).
