Summary
Sicily, April 16 1677. From his deathbed, Charles III's viceroy, Anielo de Guzman y Carafa, marquis of Castle Rodrigo, names his wife, donna Eleonora, as his successor. Eleonora de Moura is a highly intelligent and capable woman who immediately applies her political acumen to heal the scarred soul of Palermo, a city afflicted by poverty, misery, and the frequent uprisings they entail. The Marquise implements measures that include lowering the price of bread, reducing taxes for large families, re-opening women's care facilities, and establishing stipends for young couples wishing to marry -- all measures that were considered seditious by the conservative city fathers and by the Church. The machinations of powerful men, who see her as a dangerous revolutionary, soon result in her being recalled to Spain. Her rule lasted 27 days -- one cycle of the moon... Based on a true story, Camilleri's novel tells the story of a woman whose courage and political vision is tested at every step by misogyny and reactionary conservatism
