瑞貝卡‧蕭和家人到英國峰區的某個村落度假,但卻離奇失蹤,她個子不高,頭髮長度即肩,當天她穿著白色外套,村民和警方的搜尋沒有結果,沒有任何瑞貝卡的痕跡,警方派人潛入附近的水庫,依舊無所獲。

搜尋瑞貝卡的行動持續著,村民的生活也持續著,除了協助警方,他們還有許多事情代辦,要擠牛奶、要修柵欄、要除草,他們並沒有因為瑞貝卡的案子停下生活的步調。

十三年過去了,許多人來了又走,有人結婚生子,歲月一樣過去,瑞貝卡的案子從每人嘴上談論的事件,變成歷史的一部分。某天,有個人在水庫附近發現一件白色外套,符合瑞貝卡母親的敘述,警方檢驗後也查不出什麼,歲月一樣過去,他們的生活沒有因此停下腳步。

故事開頭讓讀者以為是個懸疑小說,期待瑞貝卡被發現,警方開始調查兇手和動機,但故事走向卻意外地不是如此,作者記錄了案件發生後村民十三年以來的生活,瑞貝卡的案件著實讓她的家人痛苦至極,十多年內,四季更替,日常往復,好像什麼都沒變,又似乎每個人都因此受到了影響。

From the award-winning author of If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things. Reservoir 13 tells the story of many lives haunted by one family's loss.

Midwinter in the early years of this century. A teenage girl on holiday has gone missing in the hills at the heart of England. The villagers are called up to join the search, fanning out across the moors as the police set up roadblocks and a crowd of news reporters descends on their usually quiet home.

Meanwhile, there is work that must still be done: cows milked, fences repaired, stone cut, pints poured, beds made, sermons written, a pantomime rehearsed.

The search for the missing girl goes on, but so does everyday life. As it must.

An extraordinary novel of cumulative power and grace, Reservoir 13 explores the rhythms of the natural world and the repeated human gift for violence, unfolding over thirteen years as the aftershocks of a stranger’s tragedy refuse to subside.
