Brimming with enlightened observations and brilliant voice, Idle Hands is a haunting examination of grief, resilience, and what we'd give to spend another moment with the ones we love.
You can call me Ella. You generally assign me a whole host of other preposterous monikers. I think the least imaginative name I've heard is "the devil", but I'll answer to it if I must.
After making the courageous decision to leave her abusive husband, Perdie and her three young children start over and finally find the safety and love they deserve. But years later, when tragedy strikes, Perdie is left wondering if the choice she made to leave has led them to this moment.
If she were given the opportunity to take it all back and stay, would she?
In a frantic bid to protect her family, Perdie makes a deal to do just that. But in a world where the devil pulls the strings, can Perdie really change the past?

MEDIA REVIEWS

This is one of those very rare books: You get it, you devour it and as soon as you've finished the last page you feel the urge to contact everyone you know to get them to read it.

-- Sara, NetGalley Reviewer

By far one of the best books I've read this year, possibly ever.

-- Jennie, NetGalley Reviewer

One of the most surprising and mind spinning novels I've read for a long time.

-- Nilufer, NetGalley Reviewer

Windwalker brings such humanity and care to her characters . . . this novel is an enormously powerful and thought provoking one.

-- Sabrina, NetGalley reviewer

One of the most unique and fascinating books I have ever read . . . Exceptionally clever.

-- Emma, NetGalley Reviewer

I was really taken with the title and cover of this book. “The Devil makes work for idle hands”, is a common expression and I was intrigued by this book and the idea of the puppet master as Satan.
