Description

"The Devil and Miss Prym is a simple tale, with the meaning of life and spiritual guidance at its core."

-- The Guardian

A community divided by greed, cowardice, and fear. A man haunted by the ghost of a painful past. A young woman in search of happiness. Seven days, a short period during which good and evil will wage a decisive battle, and each character will decide on which of the two sides they belong. The small village of Viscos is the setting for this disturbing fight. With the arrival of a foreigner, the entire town becomes an accomplice in a perverse plot that will forever mark the history of its inhabitants.

The foreigner has traveled from far away and needs to find the answer to a question that torments him: Are human beings, in essence, good or evil? At once an evocative novel and a suspenseful page-turner, The Devil and Miss Prym captures one moment in our eternal struggle for self-knowledge, asking a question that all of us have stopped to reflect on at some point: What is the essence of the human being?

A Good Read
By: Eviana Misty

That's too bad not many people know this book. I feel pessimistic at first, but this turn out to be a beautiful book. The story is so human, when we must choose the Devil or not, be tempted by money (gold) or just be poor forever. A must read for Paulo Coelho's fan.

“So you see, Good and Evil have the same face; it all depends on when they cross the path of each individual human being.”
