As a result, Vianne's plans for an Easter Chocolate Festival divide the whole community in a conflict that escalates into a "Church not Chocolate" battle. As mouths water in anticipation, can the solemnity of the Church compare with the pagan passion of a chocolate eclair?

"Samantha Bond is perfectly cast as Vianne: her voice is smooth and luxurious. But Gareth Armstrong steals the show as the priest who turns increasingly to his faith and in so doing loses touch with reality." (Observer)
I can't believe that this book hasn't been reviewed! I read it BEFORE seeing the film with Jonny Depp (Gorgeous). This is such a lovely heartwarming story. Joanne Harris's ability to bring scenes to life in your imagination is amazing. You can see and feel Vianne's struggles and triumphs vividly. An amazing story and one you mustn;t miss
