9780147509789: Peaches for Monsieur Le Cure (Chocolat)

The tantalizing sequel to the blockbuster New York Times bestseller Chocolat
Even before it was adapted into the Oscar-nominated film starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp, Joanne Harris s Chocolat entranced readers with its mix of hedonism, whimsy, and, of course, chocolate. Now, at last, Chocolat s heroine returns to the beautiful French village of Lansquenet in another, equally beguiling tale.
When Vianne Rocher receives a letter from beyond the grave, she has no choice but to return to Lansquenet, where she once owned a chocolate shop and learned the meaning of home. But returning to one s past can be a dangerous pursuit, and Vianne and her daughters find the beautiful French village changed in unexpected ways: women veiled in black, the scent of spices in the air, and facing the church a minaret. Most surprising of all, her old nemesis, Francis Reynaud, desperately needs her help. Can Vianne work her magic once again?"

Product Description:

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?

Review:

Praise for "Pe""aches for Monsieur le Cure"
"Worth immersing yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of Lansquenet's narrow 200-year-old streets."--"The Washington Post"
"Readers familiar with the Rochers will welcome the newest installment of their story, particularly as it addresses contemporary problems in a familiar setting."--"Publishers Weekly", Pick of the Week

"A slow buildup to a breathtaking finish."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"Harris's skill at vibrantly depicting the charm and eccentricity of rural French life is at the heart of this delightful novel."--"Library Journal "
Praise from the UK for "Peaches"" for Monsieur le Cure"
"Her characteristic love affair with texture - scents, smells and sounds - immerses the reader in a bath of seductive imagery in a brave and grippingly confected story."--"Sunday Times"
"Like "Chocolat", this book is a feast for the senses. Every page of the book is steeped in scents, colours and tastes, without ever tipping into the pretentious or showy. The writing is seductive and engaging throughout; and the magic, too, is intrinsic without ever being soppy or embarrassing. What is magic (or religion), after all, if not an ability to understand the human heart? "Peaches for Father Francis "is a wonderful return to form for Harris."--"Literary Review"
"A delightful jumble of the sensuous sights, sounds and smells the author describes so well."--"Glamour"
"Expertly crafted, typically mouthwatering."--"Daily Mail"
"An enchanting read, ripe for summer picking."--"France"" Magazine"
"A wide-ranging, powerful and very readable novel. I loved it."--"Viv Groskop, Red "
"Fasting and feasting, magic and mysticism are once again at the heart of this author's storytelling sorcery."--"The Lady"
"Absorbing and atmospheric...Joanne bravely tackles religious differences head-on but very sensitively. It's expressive, rich, vibrant and even shocking in parts."--"Heat Magazine"
