The Devil and Miss Prym: A Novel of Temptation

The Devil and Miss Prym - Amanda Hopkinson, Nick Caistor, Paulo Coelho I was hesitant to start this because so many people have found his book, The Alchemist to be life-changing, and I thought it was a beautifully written metaphor, but never quite understood all of the hoopla. I thought The Devil and Miss Prym was an intriguing story. A man walks into a remote village and offers it 10 bars of gold, enough to change the life of everyone in the village, if a person in the village dies within the next 7 days. It can be anyone - someone with a terminal illness, someone very elderly... Do they do it? Excellent story of temptation and the battle of good vs. evil.
