Summary

When an exotic stranger, Vianne Rocher, arrives in the French village of Lansquenet and opens a 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?

Great read

This was a beautifully read story which captivated my attention from start to finish. I only wish it had been a longer book.

Even better on second reading

A hint of magic, beautiful prose and of course lots of chocolate! Even better on reading it for a second time!

Delicious!

This book is a wonderful, multi-layered masterpiece. The author leads you into the narrow streets of the village and into the very heart of its inhabitants. Her internal dialogue, and that of her nemisis move the story along with a natural and appealing grace. The film was great, the book is greater.
