A wickedly delicious confection, mouth-watering and alluring. A woman of mysterious origins arrives with her daughter in a small, tightly knit, southern French village. She opens a chocolate shop, selling 'dreams, small comforts, sweet harmless temptations', to the fury of the village priest and his acolytes, who consider her wares 'Sodom and Gomorrah through a straw'. Soon her influence begins to percolate far beyond hot chocolate and fancy ribbons... A very special book. (Kirkus UK)
TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY REISSUE OF JOANNE HARRIS' BELOVED BESTSELLER WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY JOANNE HARRIS When a mysterious stranger, Vianne Rocher, arrives in the French village of Lansquenet with her daughter and opens an exotic chocolate boutique directly opposite the church, Father Reynaud denounces her as a serious moral danger to his flock - especially as it is the beginning of Lent, the traditional season of self-denial. As passions flare and the conflict escalates, the whole community takes sides. Can the solemnity of the Church compare with the sinful pleasure of a chocolate truffle? Chocolat was Joanne Harris' first book about Vianne Rocher,and was turned into a popular Oscar-nominated film with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp. The story of Vianne and her daughters was continued in Lollipop Shoes, and then in Peaches for Monsieur le Cure, and now in her new novel, The Strawberry Thief.
