An interesting, but flawed book. Perdie is a victim of domestic violence, and with Ella (the Devil) looking over her shoulder, waiting to influence outcomes, she has an opportunity to try a different route through her life.

Interesting, because it was a good idea, kind of like a Sliding Doors concept.

Flawed, because I felt the execution wasn't quite right. Ella's voice, while initially interesting, broke the plot too often for too long, with monologues that contributed less than intended. Also, it was a pity the alternative timelimes were limited to just one - after the setup, I felt there was scope to play with this, with more divergence, or parallel threads perhaps.

Still, a good holiday read! 4/5
