內容簡介

  一則關於家庭、秘密、身分與追尋的動人故事

  因為那時剛剛移民到異鄉,家境清寒,希薇幼年時期就由遠親扶養,直到九歲才與在美國生活的妹妹艾咪團聚。艾咪一直非常敬愛希薇,因為姐姐總是保護害羞而膽怯的她,並對她付出無條件的愛。

  然而一天,當美麗聰慧的希薇,飛往荷蘭去見即將離世的祖母,卻隨即消失。

  她發生了什麼事?

  艾咪與父母心急如焚。艾咪於是追尋姐姐的足跡,來到希薇最後被目擊之處。然而她在那裡發現的不是答案,而是姊姊埋藏在內心深處的痛苦真相:關於她們複雜的家庭,甚至是關於艾咪本身……。

  “Powerful  . . . A twisting tale of love, loss, and dark family secrets.”  — Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Train and Into the Water


  A poignant and suspenseful drama that untangles the complicated ties binding three women—two sisters and their mother—in one Chinese immigrant family and explores what happens when the eldest daughter disappears, and a series of family secrets emerge, from the New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Translation

  It begins with a mystery. Sylvie, the beautiful, brilliant, successful older daughter of the Lee family, flies to the Netherlands for one final visit with her dying grandmother—and then vanishes.

  Amy, the sheltered baby of the Lee family, is too young to remember a time when her parents were newly immigrated and too poor to keep Sylvie. Seven years older, Sylvie was raised by a distant relative in a faraway, foreign place, and didn’t rejoin her family in America until age nine. Timid and shy, Amy has always looked up to her sister, the fierce and fearless protector who showered her with unconditional love.

  But what happened to Sylvie? Amy and her parents are distraught and desperate for answers. Sylvie has always looked out for them. Now, it’s Amy’s turn to help. Terrified yet determined, Amy retraces her sister’s movements, flying to the last place Sylvie was seen. But instead of simple answers, she discovers something much more valuable: the truth. Sylvie, the golden girl, kept painful secrets . . . secrets that will reveal more about Amy’s complicated family—and herself—than she ever could have imagined.

  A deeply moving story of family, secrets, identity, and longing, Searching for Sylvie Lee is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive portrait of an immigrant family. It is a profound exploration of the many ways culture and language can divide us and the impossibility of ever truly knowing someone—especially those we love.
