The church of solitude by Grazia Deledda ( )
54 editions published between 1936 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,344 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

"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

Y está enamorada de Paulo Decherchi, el hijo menor de la familia que después de quedar viudo vive dispendiosamente en el ocio, dilapidando lo que queda de la fortuna familiar. Acosado por las deudas y sin perspectivas de conseguir crédito, Paulo amenaza con el suicidio.

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
