Peaches for Monsieur le Cur Chocolat 3 Book Description:

'DEFTLY TACKLING THE SUBJECT OF RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE, THIS BEWITCHING NOVEL STIRS THE SENSES' Good Housekeeping It isn't often you receive a letter from the dead. When Vianne Rocher receives a letter from beyond the grave, she allows the wind to blow her back to the village in south-west France where, eight years ago, she opened up a chocolate shop. But Lansquenet is different now: women veiled in black, the scent of spices and peppermint tea, and, on the bank of the river Tannes, facing the church: a minaret. Nor is it only the incomers from North Africa that have brought change. Father Reynaud, Vianne’s erstwhile adversary, is disgraced and under threat. Could it be that Vianne is the only one who can save him now?

TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY REISSUE OF JOANNE HARRIS' BELOVED BESTSELLER WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY JOANNE HARRIS 'Mouthwatering . . . a feelgood book of the first order . . . read it' OBSERVER ________ When a mysterious stranger, Vianne Rocher, arrives in the French village of Lansquenet with her daughter and opens an exotic chocolate boutique directly opposite the church, Father Reynaud denounces her as a serious moral danger to his flock - especially as it is the beginning of Lent, the traditional season of self-denial. As passions flare and the conflict escalates, the whole community takes sides. Can the solemnity of the Church compare with the sinful pleasure of a chocolate truffle? ________ Chocolat was Joanne Harris' first book about Vianne Rocher,and was turned into a popular Oscar-nominated film with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp. The story of Vianne and her daughters was continued in Lollipop Shoes, and then in Peaches for Monsieur le Cure, and now in her new novel, The Strawberry Thief.
