Sobre o livro:
"A História do Amor de Fernando e Isaura" é uma paixão proibida. Um amor tão verdadeiro e intenso que, impedido de ser vivenciado em toda a sua plenitude, encaminha-se para um trágico desfecho. Até hoje o único romance do autor que não se passa na Paraíba e, além disso, ao contrário do que parece em toda a sua obra, o Sertão encontra-se praticamente ausente da narrativa: seu cenário é Alagoas, com grande parte das ações decorrendo nas proximidades do mar.
