The church of solitude by Grazia Deledda ( )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Church of Solitude tells the story of Maria Concezione, a young Sardinian seamstress living with breast cancer at the cusp of the twentieth century. Overwhelmed by the shame of her diagnosis, she decides that no one can know what has happened to her, but the heavy burden of this secrecy changes her life in dramatic ways and almost causes the destruction of several people in her life. This surprising novel paints the portrait of a woman facing the unknown with courage, faith, and self-reliance, and is the last and most autobiographical work of Grazia Deledda, who died of breast cancer in 1936, shortly after its publication." -- back cover

When her husband is taken away, Giovanna has no way to provide for herself, her mother, or her son, who soon dies of malnutrition. Out of desperation she divorces Constantino, according to a new law for wives of convicts, and marries a wealthy but brutish landowner. When the true murderer confesses and Constantino returns, he and Giovanna begin a forbidden and ultimately destructive affair." -- back cover

"After serving time in mainland Italy for a minor theft, Elias Portolu returns home to Nuoro, in rural Sardinia. Lonely and vulnerable after his prison exile, he falls in love with Maddalena, his brother's fiancee. He finds himself trapped by social and religious strictures, his passion and guilt winding into a spiral of anguish and paralyzing indecision. For guidance he turns to the village priest, who advises him to resist temptation; then he turns to the pagan "father of the woods," who recognizes the weakness of human will and urges him to declare his love before it is too late. Finally Elias chooses a course that provides a measure of redemption but forces him into a position from which he can only helphlessly observe the results of his affair." -- back cover

Ashes by Grazia Deledda ( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The novel lends itself well to the gritty, realistic film genre, as it is a scathing indicting of the deplorable social situation for women in the Sardinia of the last fin de siecle. An expose of class and gender inequality and the tragic poverty on the island, Ashes fits well with Verismo, its contemporary movement in literature and lyric opera."--BOOK JACKET

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Against the will of her entire family, the lovers plan to marry, but at Marianna's insistence only after Simone "gets right with the law." The novel traces the story of these two emarginated lovers through various twists and turns, ending with a typical Deleddan flourish that leaves the reader with a real awareness of Sardinian, social mores, values, attitudes, and tradition."--BOOK JACKET
