A stranger arrives in the small mountain village. He carries with him a backpack containing a notebook and eleven gold bars.
Burying these in the vicinity, the stranger strikes up a curious friendship with a young woman from the village Miss Prym. His mission is to discover whether human beings are essentially good or evil.
In this stunning new novel, Paulo Coelho's unusual protagonist sets the town a moral challenge from which they may never recover. A fascinating meditation on the human soul, The Devil and Miss Prym illuminates the reality of good and evil within us all, and our uniquely human capacity to choose between them.
