Original Title: La inocencia lesionada

In the first decade after the Spanish Civil War, life in Masnou, a coastal village not far from Barcelona, sedately flows around a respectable middle-class family, symbol of domestic harmony. Carlos is immersed in this apparently friction-free world but rancour, violence, police reprisals and sexual brutality soon start corroding its idyllic facade. He begins to see the sordid reality of a tragedy which will end up devouring the whole town and, with it, the Oria dynasty. This is the most disconcerting, tender and painful novel Masoliver Ródenas has written to date.
