August 15, 1839, Messina, Italy. In the home of Marshall don Peppino Padellani di Opiri, preparations for the feast of the Ascension are underway, but for Agata, the Marshall's daughter, there are more important matters at hand. She and the wealthy Giacomo Lepre have fallen in love. Her mother, however, is determined that the two young people will not marry. When, one month later, Marshall don Peppino dies, Agata's mother decides to ferry her daughter away from Messina, to Naples, where she hopes to garner a stipend from the king and keep her daughter far from trouble's reach. They travel to Naples on a boat captained by the young Englishman, James Garson. Following a tempestuous passage to Naples, during which Agata confesses her troubles to James, Agata and her mother find themselves rebuffed by the king and Agata is forced to join a convent. The Benedictine monastery of San Giorgio Stilita is rife with rancor and jealousy, illicit passions and ancient feuds. Agata remains aloof, devoting herself to the cultivation of medicinal herbs, calmed by the steady rhythms of monastic life. Through letters she stays in contact with Garson, reading all the books he sends her, and follows the news of the various factions struggling to bring unity to Italy. Though she didn't choose to enter the convent and is divided between her yearnings for purity and religiosity and her desire to be part of the world, something about the cloistered life reverberates within her. Agata is increasingly torn when she realizes that her feelings for Garson, though he is only a distant presence in her life, have eclipsed those for Lepre.--From inside front cover

La Tía marquesa by Simonetta Agnello Hornby( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and held by 23 libraries worldwide
Cuando la baronesa Caterina Safamita dio a luz a Contanza, al ver que era niña y no varón, y además pelirroja, no quiso ni tocarla. Costanza, dócil y reservada, se crió entre las mujeres del servicio. No obstante, fue ella, y no sus hermanos, quien heredó las riquezas y el deber de preservar el buen nombre de la familia. Al menos eso cuenta Amalia Cuffaro, su nodriza, quien poco a poco desgrana episodios de la intensa vida de Costanza, "la tía marquesa": su abandono de la vida de provincias por la bulliciosa Palermo, su atormentado matrimonio con el marqué Pietro Sabbiamena, y su sensación de no pertenecer a ninguno de los mundos que la rodean. El retrato de esta mujer es excepcional, inconformista y contradictoria, se recorta no sólo sobre el trasfondo de una saga familiar rebosante de pasiones, crueldad y abusos de poder, sino sobre una época crucial de la Sicilia decimonónica: el din del reinado borbónico y la llegada de los Saboya, el ascenso del poder mafioso en el campo y la decadencia de la aristocracia, símbolo de un universo ya perdido.--Descripción de la editorial
