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!

It doesn't matter how old you are, or where your from, this book will inspire all. This book is like a truffle. When you first bite into it, you can't taste the flavor, in the first second or two. After you chew it throughly, you finally taste flavor, and it melts in your mouth, spreading throught your body, and soon melting your heat. You fall in love with the truffle. That is exactly what happened with me, when I read this book, and I recommend this to all who need something sweet.

An enchanting novel about a small French village turned upside down by the arrival of a bewitching chocolatier, Vianne, and her daughter. Insistent upon opening a chocolate shop just before Lent, Vianne turns the local priest into her archenemy. As Lent approaches, the villagers find themselves torn between the demands of their faith and the lure of the charming Vianne and her chocolate creations. A wonderful tale for chocolate lovers and book lovers alike.
