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?

Idle Hands is a wholly interesting read that grips the reader with an original plot and makes them really examine why we do the things we do and make the choices we make.
