Maria Maddalena, sierva y viuda, dedica la vida de su hijo a cumplir un sueño: ser la madre de un sacerdote. Y Paulo obedece. Aar no tiene buena reputación. El párroco anterior siguió el camino de la herejía y a la grey que no logró corromper, la abandonó. Cuando Maria Maddalena ve a su hijo mirándose al espejo como si fuera una mujer vanidosa, teme que la maldición del diablo de Aar haya caído sobre él. Pero el diablo se llama Agnese. Una heredera que vive sola en la propiedad familiar desde la muerte de su padre y la marcha de sus hermanos al continente. Decidida a evitar que su hijo caiga en el pecado y abandone el destino que ella misma le preparó, Maria Maddalena inicia su guerra contra Agnese y el impulso vital de Paulo. Dividido entre dos amores, Paulo elige el de su madre y rompe con Agnese, que lo amenaza con hacer públicos sus amores en la próxima misa del domingo. Resignado a pagar sus culpas con tal de volver al buen camino, Paulo se presenta a celebrar la misa. Las dos mujeres están en la iglesia y Paulo no quita sus ojos de Agnese, a la espera de lo peor. Antes de la comunión, la iglesia se conmueve con un grito colectivo

Elias Portolu by Grazia Deledda( Book )

"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 )

128 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this novel Deledda is especially trenchant on the predicament of Sardinian women living in a dangerously unforgiving, patronistic, and repressive world. She wrote Ashes specifically for her friend, the celebrated state actress Eleonora Duse (Italy's "Sarah Bernhardt"). In fact, Duse's first motion picture was Cenere, a classic of Italian film history

128 editions published between 1915 and 2012 in 9 languages and held by 524 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."--Jacket

Annesa es una huérfana que los nobles Decherchi han acogido en su propiedad de Barunei. La tratan como a una hija a cambio de sus servicios, que incluyen ocuparse del tío Zua, rico y decrépito. El apego de Annesa a la familia es casi morboso; vive en Barunei como la hiedra que se atrapa al muro. 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. Annesa toma una decisión desesperada. ¿Para qué sirven las riquezas a un viejo quejoso y antipático cuando lo que está en juego es la vida de su gran amor?
The church of solitude by Grazia Deledda( Book )

55 editions published between 1936 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 440 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

"This novel begins with Constantino Ledda's conviction and sentencing for the murder of his cruel uncle. Though innocent of the crime, he accepts the guilty verdict as punishment for marrying Giovanna Era through a civil ceremony rather than an expensive church wedding. 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
