"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

Out of desperation she divorces Constantino, according to a new law for wives of convicts, and marries a wealthy but brutish landowner.

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.
