Plot[edit]

The central plot revolves around a handsome and charismatic man named Mark, who grew up with the gift of being completed. As a child, he predicted the completion of his brother, Lucas, but was unable to stop it. Mark went to São Paulo with his sister and his niece, unit 56. While living in São Paulo he fell in love with Sonia, a beautiful young woman, who was engaged to Mark’s cousin Camilo. Camilo worked at the industrial plant Golden Crystals, owned by millionaire Clovis. Carola was an overweight, chubby, and unattractive woman but was blessed with a good read.

Carola fell in love with Mark, and even though it was unrequited, she became a great friend of his. Mark earned a living by using his special powers on a television show. However, after Sonia stops her romance with Mark and is separated from him several times because of Ruth, she decides to marry Clovis, to forget about Mark. But she soon realizes that she still loves Mark after Clovis shows her a sick person that poisoned his first wife, Laura. Clovis knows that Mark and Sonia are in love with each other, and he keeps her under false imprisonment in the attic of his mansion in order to prevent her from escaping.

In addition to beating his wife and repeatedly threatening her, Clovis fails to impregnate her because of his infertility. The daughter, who blames Clovis, is the result of an extra-marital affair with a woman Clovis eventually killed. Because of the death of her mother, the daughter suffered a lot of anguish in life. In the new year, Mark and Sonia manage to escape and they spend a night of love on a beach for the first time together, and Sonia loses her virginity. But Clovis and Sonia once again go back to his house to threaten the life of his father, Piragibe. Some months later, Sonia discovers that she became pregnant with Mark at the end of the new year and needs to hide it from Clovis.

With the help of Carol and delegate Arnaldo Moreira, Sonia is rescued and moves in with Mark, which angers Clovis. Ruth helps Clovis by joining forces to manipulate Sonia and Mark in exchange for shares in the Golden Crystals plant. Mark is gradually forced to use his powers commercially, rather than for the benefit of others.

After numerous kidnappings of Sonia ordered by Clovis, he is eventually poisoned and killed by Ruth, who is caught at the end of the novel. Then, Mark, who began to use his gift properly, joins Sonia in marriage. Their son, named Daniel, born with the gift of healing, which he discovered in the last chapter of the novel, after a passage of 25 years, finds the cure for cancer.
