內容簡介

◎ 佳評如潮的暢銷書《當時,上帝是一隻兔子》作者莎拉.溫曼最新暖心力作
◎ 亞馬遜網路書店讀者4.5顆星推薦

一位已屆遲暮之年的獨居長者,一位飽受戰爭摧殘的年輕士兵,發展出不可能的忘年之交。一本關於愛與死亡、戰爭與和平、自我發現與原諒的作品。

1947年.英國康瓦爾郡。

89歲的老奶奶Marvellous Ways幾乎終其一生,獨居於遙遠康瓦爾郡的小溪旁。最近,她被某種強烈的感覺襲來,覺得有什麼即將出現於她的人生中,於是她日復一日,坐在河邊的石頭上,手拿望遠鏡看向遠方,不斷等待。然後,一位年輕軍人Drake出現了。他經歷第二次世界大戰的衝擊,身心俱疲,飽受驚嚇,卻為了完成一名男子臨死前託付的任務,而拖著破碎的身軀被沖上岸邊。當他們兩人的人生軌道交錯,訴說一段段過去,互相需要、互相療癒,會帶來怎麼樣的結局?

充滿詩意的細膩語言、美麗意象與緩慢步調的堆疊、過去與現實的模糊界線、魔幻寫實的風格,使讀者彷彿跟著主角一同經歷自我發現的奇幻之旅。當悲痛襲來,仍緊追在後不肯散去,人生該如何持續前進?闔上書頁仍餘韻不斷,悲傷卻充滿希望,讀者也能從Marvellous身上得到對人生的反思。 


A YEAR OF MARVELLOUS WAYS is the unforgettable and completely captivating new novel from Sarah Winman, author of the international bestseller WHEN GOD WAS A RABBIT.

Marvellous Ways is eighty-nine years old and has lived alone in a remote Cornish creek for nearly all her life. Lately she's taken to spending her days sitting on a mooring stone by the river with a telescope. She's waiting for something - she's not sure what, but she'll know it when she sees it.

Drake is a young soldier left reeling by the Second World War. When his promise to fulfil a dying man's last wish sees him wash up in Marvellous' creek, broken in body and spirit, the old woman comes to his aid.

A Year of Marvellous Ways is a glorious, life-affirming story about the magic in everyday life and the pull of the sea, the healing powers of storytelling and sloe gin, love and death and how we carry on when grief comes snapping at our heels.
