Read full description of the books:
Encontramo-nos em Inglaterra, numa aldeia tranquila onde ainda se vive ao ritmo das estações e dos trabalhos agrícolas sazonais. Num final de verão, no entanto, o novo senhor das terras e os seus homens chegam e confiscam os terrenos comunitários para iniciar a criação de ovelhas e a produção de lã. A desconfiança, o medo, a revolta e a violência instalam-se e, em apenas sete dias, assistimos à dissolução de uma ordem social quase paradisíaca face ao nascimento da era industrial. Mas qualquer coisa ainda mais inquietante se insinua no coração desta história narrada pelo único homem que fica para a contar... Walter Thirks. A prosa encantatória e poética de Jim Crace serve esta belíssima narrativa na perfeição.
