Cristian is enterprising and determined. Maddalena is tenacious and quite able to imagine - and defend - her own future.

Cristian and Maddalena have always known each other, and if fate had not gone awry they might already be married. But between them, exactly in the middle, there is Domenico: Cristian's childhood friend who has grown up alongside him like a brother. And when Cristian succumbs to the fate of the Chironis - that curse of illnesses, murders and suicides that has blighted his family over the years - it is Domenico that Maddalena marries.


Taking his trilogy of the Chironi family up to the present day, Marcello Fois has woven a delicately detailed story, full of dormant passions, plot twists, betrayals and reconciliations. The story of one family on a tiny islandhas a universality, a humanity and a power to speak to any one of us.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Fois' descriptive prose is lavish, powerfully evoking time and place. It's as if nature is possessed of a richness of expression that humans have yet to acquire . . . Mazzarella's translation is flawless -- Jethro Souter * Independent *
It is a long time since I last came across a writer with such a deep, poetic sense of nature and the ability to convey it -- Andrea Camilleri
Descriptions are so vivid the sun-baked dust catches in your throat -- Rosemary Goring * Glasgow Herald *
