Title: The Devil and Miss Prym
Author: Paulo Coelho
Publisher: HarperCollinsPublishers
(First published in English in 2001. Read 2003 edition.)

I borrowed this book from the library, and had just finished reading this book recently.

In this book, a man who had a painful past visited the remote village of Viscos. He came in search for the answer of whether human beings are good or evil. The protagonist, Miss Prym faced the challenge of making the choice between good and evil.

This is an interesting book about making choices. I would so say. When faced with a choice between good and evil, what are the processes involved? I suppose the story between St Savin and Ahab who were characters mentioned in the book illustrated the battle between Good and Evil. At the end of the day, it boils down to choice and a matter of control.
