Escrito em 1939, o livro conta a história de amor entre sueca e um nativo de uma fictícia cidade litorânea de Alagoas. O improvável romance é alvo de recriminações por parte da comunidade estrangeira e dos moradores do vilarejo, e acaba transformando a vida de todos.

Mais do que uma difícil história de amor, José Lins do Rêgo ilustra o deadlock político e econômico da época. A bela sueca representa o investimento estrangeiro no petróleo brasileiro e o nativo, o interesse nacional.
