內容簡介

還記得蕾秋.喬伊斯的《一個人的朝聖》(The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry)嗎?故事中,哈洛從英格蘭的最南走到最北,只為了去探望老朋友昆妮......。

在英格蘭最北的市鎮有一間安養院,昆妮在院裡度過人生的最後一段時光,日復一日等人送來營養飲品,還等睡前醫生喃喃的叮囑,有一天她決定利用這中間漫長的時間寫信給一個二十年沒見面的男人──哈洛。

她曾經是哈洛的同事,偷偷暗戀他,但後來看到他結婚了,決定默默退出祝福。

她寫信的本意或許是道別,但當她知道哈洛決定橫跨整個英格蘭來看自己的時候,她必須等到他來。在等待的期間,新來的修女建議她把所有要跟哈洛說的話寫成一封長信。於是在《一個人的朝聖》之後,我們在《The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy: A Novel》中讀到了故事的另一半,讀到了昆妮的故事......。

蕾秋.喬伊斯(Rachel Joyce)曾是一位演員,於皇家莎士比亞劇團多次擔綱要角,獲獎無數,之後轉任編劇,替英國BBC Radio Four電台寫了許多廣播劇劇本。《一個人的朝聖》是她的第一本小說,入圍2012年布克獎初選,2012年以此書獲美國國家圖書獎「年度最佳新人獎」。第二本小說《Perfect》於2013年出版,深獲書評家讚賞。

From the author of the 2 million+ copy, worldwide bestseller, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, an exquisite, funny and heartrending parallel story.

When Queenie Hennessy discovers that Harold Fry is walking the length of England to save her, and all she has to do is wait, she is shocked. Her note had explained she was dying. How can she wait?

A new volunteer at the hospice suggests that Queenie should write again; only this time she must tell Harold everything. In confessing to secrets she has hidden for twenty years, she will find atonement for the past. As the volunteer points out, ‘Even though you’ve done your travelling, you’re starting a new journey too.’

Queenie thought her first letter would be the end of the story. She was wrong. It was the beginning.

Told in simple, emotionally-honest prose, with a mischievous bite, this is a novel about the journey we all must take to learn who we are; it is about loving and letting go. And most of all it is about finding joy in unexpected places and at times we least expect.
