Reeds in the Wind by Grazia Deledda

Reeds in the Wind by Grazia Deledda. 1999 Ithaca Press, second printing, 1999 pages. Deledda was from Sardinia and wrote about small simple life on the island. According to the Paris Review, "While she was not associated with the Italian feminist movement, the actions of her female characters suggest she considered marginalization to be heartbreaking, but not without certain liberties." Deledda won the Nobel Prize in 1926, the first Italian woman to do so. According to Publishers Weekly, Reeds  "is a tale of penitence, salvation and a Christian-peasant notion of destiny. Deledda traces the decline of the noble Pintor sisters, who live in Sardinia at the turn of the century."
