Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Just a few days before Lent, a flamboyant woman and her daughter open a chocolate shop in a small French town and create a stir with their seemingly magical sweet-treat remedies for life's problems. The cover of this official movie tie-in edition will feature art from "Chocolat", a major motion picture coming from Miramax and starring Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Alfred Molina, and Lena Olin.

Description:

Greeted as "an amazement of riches ... few readers will be able to resist" by The New York Times, Chocolat is an enchanting novel about a small French town turned upside down by the arrival of a bewitching chocolate confectioner, Vianne Rocher, and her spirited young daughter.

About the Author

Joanne Harris, part French and part English, found the inspiration for her novel Chocolat in her own family history and folklore--herself having lived in a sweet-shop and being the great-granddaughter of a Frenchwoman known locally as a witch and a healer who once disguised herself as an apparition of the Virgin Mary to shock the local priest. Harris, who studied at St. Catharine's College in Cambridge where she received a BA and an MA in French and German, teaches French in an English school and lives in Yorkshire, England, with her husband and daughter.

This enchanting fable of good vs evil is best enjoyed with a steaming mug of hot chocolate and a chocolate croissant.

A strong-minded, gutsy heroine, a town of real people with real histories, grabbed me from page 1 and kept me entralled, all the way to the happy ending-my favorite kind!
