Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chocolate and Lent go head-to-head in this original and imaginative novel set in France. The opening of a chocolate boutique in a small village by an exotic stranger stirs religious and culinary passions that divide a community. Film rights have been sold, and promotion will include a tie-in with a chocolate manufacturer. "Makes your mouth water... a subtle and brilliant novel" "Daily Telegraph. Sleep, Pale Sister" and "The Evil Seed" are Harris's two previous novels, and "Blackberry Wine", the new Doubleday hardback, is also published this month.

Synopsis:

An exotic stranger opens a chocolate boutique in a French village at the beginning of Lent, the traditional season for self-denial, dividing the community and causing a conflict that escalates into a "Church not Chocolate" battle.

This is the perfect summer read. Under Joanne Harris's pen the characters and the place come alive. You can almost taste the food. Great book to pack in your beach bag.
