I was a bit uncertain about this novel for the first couple of chapters but then got into the rhythm of it. Ultimately I really enjoyed it.
Interesting characters and the episodes of their lives that were shared were easy to engage with.
I like the themes of the Tollund Man and the farm, weaving throughout the story and the theme of family and children.
Well done Anne, a very enjoyable read.

Vianne Rocher has settled down. Lansquenet-sous-Tannes, the place that once rejected her, has finally become her home. With Rosette, her 'special' child, she runs her chocolate shop in the square, talks to her friends on the river, is part of the community. Even Reynaud, the priest, has become a friend. But when old Narcisse, the florist, dies, leaving a parcel of land to Rosette and a written confession to Reynaud, the life of the sleepy village is once more thrown into disarray....

It took a little while for me to get into the rhythm of this story.
I have read the others in the series.
It is well told and it has enough layers to keep you interested and wanting to know more.
I thought the ending resolved matters well.
I recommend to existing readers of Joanne Harris and if you are new to her work and style - I would suggest it's worth a go.
