Quite philosophical. Honestly, I need a second read because I lost focus here and there. Bonus points for simple language and plain writing style, with the message being conveyed just the same!
I'd give it a 3/5 rating.

Ok, Francine...... stop writing books that I can't put down for hours!
Whew, this was good.

A stranger comes to the small village of Viscos. Using Miss Prym as his messenger, he makes the villagers an offer they can't refuse...or can they? This book moves quickly through the ten days as the villagers decide whether they will allow themselves to be tempted by evil. It was a fast 240 pages and I wish there would've been more turmoil shown among some of the villagers as they decide what to do. #Brazil #foodandlit @Butterfinger @texreader

These are my #foodandlit selections for January celebrating Brazil. I'll likely go through a cookbook, too, to see if there's anything I can make. I have to start the year off strong, right?!

Thanks for the tag, @Annie1215

For today‘s card‘s theme of #temptation, Charlie and the Chocolate factory immediately came to mind, since my post election stress-eating struggle not to eat all the Halloween candy in the house is very, very real😅

This is a story that invokes old world story telling and philisophical debates over good v evil. When a small village is tempted to kill just one community member for a lifetime of riches, which triumphs? Is the little village as it is perceived--one of good hearts? Or is it susceptible to greed as the devil suspects? ...I just didn't care. The plot unfolded slowly and the characters were predictable.
