內容簡介

《不能說的名字》作者Chris Cleave最新力作,描述在戰爭中發生的關於愛、失去、偏見與勇氣的故事。

「在最近關於戰爭的小說中,Cleave這部新作,以讓人難以抗拒的迷人角色而顯得出類拔萃。」
--《柯克斯評論》(Kirkus Review)

1939年二次大戰時的倫敦,出身政治世家的社交名媛Mary,決定投身志願教學的工作,教導因戰爭從倫敦疏散至鄉間卻又遭當地人拒絕的兒童,因為這些孩子不是體弱就是心智有障礙,或是有深色的皮膚,如同她最喜愛的學生Zachary一般。Tom,是個學校的行政人員,他最好的朋友Alastair原本是個藝術修復師,因政府徵招入伍,不得不過起以前離他很遙遠的殘酷生活,因為戰爭的暴力,Alastair不斷地指責自己。兩男一女因戰事相遇,捲入了悲劇的三角戀情。當戰事升高,在他們的周圍不斷地投下炸單,世界從此變了樣…。

這本新作是作者Chris Cleave根據祖父母的真實經歷而創作的小說,他花了四年的時間,走訪經歷二戰的老人,研究二戰的檔案。透過這本小說,他探索了各種不同經歷與階級的人,如:被剝奪了權力,失去了親人,社會菁英以及投身戰事者。Everyone Brave is Forgiven是一個讓人心碎卻又美麗的關於愛、失去、偏見與勇氣的故事。

From the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Little Bee, a spellbinding novel about three unforgettable individuals thrown together by war, love, and their search for belonging in the ever-changing landscape of WWII London.

It’s 1939 and Mary, a young socialite, is determined to shock her blueblood political family by volunteering for the war effort. She is assigned as a teacher to children who were evacuated from London and have been rejected by the countryside because they are infirm, mentally disabled, or—like Mary’s favorite student, Zachary—have colored skin.

Tom, an education administrator, is distraught when his best friend, Alastair, enlists. Alastair, an art restorer, has always seemed far removed from the violent life to which he has now condemned himself. But Tom finds distraction in Mary, first as her employer and then as their relationship quickly develops in the emotionally charged times. When Mary meets Alastair, the three are drawn into a tragic love triangle and—while war escalates and bombs begin falling around them—further into a new world unlike any they’ve ever known.

A sweeping epic with the kind of unforgettable characters, cultural insights, and indelible scenes that made Little Bee so incredible, Chris Cleave’s latest novel explores the disenfranchised, the bereaved, the elite, the embattled. Everyone Brave Is Forgiven is a heartbreakingly beautiful story of love, loss, and incredible courage. - See more at: http://books.simonandschuster.com/Everyone-Brave-is-Forgiven/Chris-Cleave/9781501124372#sthash.EPy6FJkP.dpuf
