Summary (From the publisher):

Set in the rugged Sardinian region of Baronia, a place subject to nature's atmospheric whims, Reeds in the Wind presents the story of the Pintnor sisters—from a family of noble landowners now in decline—their nephew Giacinto, and their servant Efix, who is trying to make up for a sin committed many years before. It is a story related with Grazia Deledda's characteristic love of the natural landscape and fascination with folk culture of the island, with details about the famous religious festivals held in mountain encampments and the lore of the "dark beings who populate the Sardinian night, the fairies who live in rocks and caves, and the sprites with seven red caps who bother sleep."
