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.

    Good and Evil is raging all the time in every individual’s heart, which is the battleground for all angels and devils; they would fight inch by inch for thousands of millennia in order to gain ground, until one of them finally vanquished the other.

    “Did I hit it?” he would ask, removing the blindfold.
    “Of course not,” the new arrival would say, pleased to see the proud guide humbled. “You missed it by a mile. I don’t think there’s anything you can teach me.”
    “I’ve just taught you the most important lesson in life,” Berta’s husband would reply. “Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes close

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