“The Sygria” is a narrative written like a fairytale for adults; suitable for teenagers too. It records the harsh thinking of the people in Mani (Peloponnese, Southern Greece) around the time of 1870, it is also observed from our contemporary point of view, the custom of the sygria-mistress which was a customary law in Mani. The need, the land and the debt, exceeded any family and religious objections.
