Because Mary is over to live at the house of Bonaria Urrai, he is a mystery that in Seveni is struggling to understand. The old woman and the girl walks through the streets of the country followed by a trawl of malicious comments, yet it is so simple: Tzia Bonaria took Maria with him, will make her grow and will make her heir, asking her in exchange for presence and care For when she'll need it. Fourth female daughter of mother widow, Mary is used to thinking about it, her first, like "the last". For this reason they do not end up surprising the respect and attention of the old seamstress in the country, which offered you a home and a future, but above all it lets you live and it doesn't seem to be desired instead of her. "Tutt'a stretch was as if he had always been like this, soul and threads soul, a less guilty way of being a mother and daughter". Yet there is something in this old dressed in black and in her long silences, there is a mysterious aura that accompanies her, along with that shadow of scare that lights in the eyes of those who meet him. There are night outings that Mary intercepts but she doesn't understand, and an almost millennial wisdom regarding the things of life and death. What everyone knows and that Maria does not imagine, is that Tzia Bonaria Urrai sews clothes and comforts the souls, you know the spells and invoices, but when you need it is ready to enter homes to bring a pitiful death. The of her is the loving and final gesture of the Acabadora, the last mother.
