Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A stranger arrives at the remote village of Viscos, carrying with him a backpack containing a notebook and eleven gold bars. He comes searching for the answer to a question that torments him: Are human beings, in essence, good or evil? In welcoming the mysterious foreigner, the whole village becomes an accomplice to his sophisticated plot, which will forever mark their lives.

A novel of temptation by the internationally bestselling author Paulo Coelho, The Devil and Miss Prym is a thought-provoking parable of a community devoured by greed, cowardice, and fear--as it struggles with the choice between good and evil.

Synopsis:

A stranger arrives in the small mountain village. He carries with him a backpack containing a notebook and 11 gold bars. Burying these in the vicinity, the stranger strikes up a curious friendship with Miss Prym. His mission is to discover whether human beings are essentially good or evil.
