Synopsis

THE THIRD NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING CHOCOLAT SERIES

'Expertly crafted, typically mouthwatering' DAILY MAIL

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?

As always it was a pleasure to revisit Lansquenet, to meet friends old ... and new.
Over long, at times a bit contrived and, despite the wonderful exploration of differing communities, of prejudice and intolerance, I couldn't help but feel... READ MORE
