內容簡介


一本關於愛、抉擇與人生意義的小說。在星際間充滿戲劇化的長途旅行,女主角如何橫越受疫病蹂躪的宇宙,回到那個她曾經稱之為家的地方,重回曾經所愛的男人身邊?

「獨特的劇情與睿智的文字,很難相信《星辰間的太空》(The Space Between the Stars)是Anne Corlett的第一部小說。她理解人心的複雜與脆弱,並且在字裡行間透顯出來。別讓場景忽悠了你,這是一本給任何年紀的人看的故事,一本結合了愛、失落、希望與所有可能性的美味小說。絕對是我藏書架上的一本書。」-《紐約時報》暢銷書The Night the Lights Went Out作者Karen White

當世界末日來臨,你將往何處去?

致命的病毒將人類化為灰燼,消解了大部分的記憶,女主角如何面對宇宙與內心的空虛?

Jamie Allenby渴望的就只是空間,並不是被迫自地球移民至他處,她是自願離開這個人滿為患、讓人感到束縛的星球。當一份長久的關係只剩下沉默與讓人窒息的哀傷時,她找到了一份位於文明盡頭、世界邊境的一份差事。然後,病毒突然襲擊了…。

Jamie孤單一人,因為所有人都因為疫病而死亡,直到來自地球的一段模糊不清的訊息給了她希望:那個已成為她過去的某個人或許還活著。

很快地,Jamie發現了其他的倖存者,某個在地球重新開始的承諾,吸引了這群烏合之眾穿越廣闊的太空,但是他們的夢想卻必須與那些死命抓住老舊傳統的人相抗衡。對Jamie個人來說,她的返家之旅也將助她拉進現在與未來的她之間的距離…。


When the world ends, where will you go?

In a breathtakingly vivid and emotionally gripping debut novel, one woman must confront the emptiness in the universe—and in her own heart—when a devastating virus reduces most of humanity to dust and memories.
 
All Jamie Allenby ever wanted was space. Even though she wasn’t forced to emigrate from Earth, she willingly left the overpopulated, claustrophobic planet. And when a long relationship devolved into silence and suffocating sadness, she found work on a frontier world on the edges of civilization. Then the virus hit…
 
Now Jamie finds herself dreadfully alone, with all that’s left of the dead. Until a garbled message from Earth gives her hope that someone from her past might still be alive.
 
Soon Jamie finds other survivors, and their ragtag group will travel through the vast reaches of space, drawn to the promise of a new beginning on Earth. But their dream will pit them against those desperately clinging to the old ways. And Jamie’s own journey home will help her close the distance between who she has become and who she is meant to be…
