Peaches for Monsieur Le Cure by Joanne Harris – review

What’s Peaches for Monsieur Le Cure about? Vianne receives a letter from the dead, asking her to go back to Lansquenet, the village she lived in 8 years ago where she owned a chocolate shop. The community has changed beyond recognition and her old adversary, Father Reynaud, is in trouble. Is Vianne the only one who can save him?

goodtoknow says: Fans of Joanne Harris’s best-selling book, Chocolat will be instantly transported back to the village where Vianne’s story first began. Being back there was comforting and re-meeting previous characters felt like catching up with old friends. Joanne Harris’s descriptions of food and cooking evoked powerful images and emotions, as always. But the book was so much more. It was a credible insight into the relationships within a family and also two men with completely opposing religious views. Joanne Harris builds the tension in the story slowly but surely and the outcome of the narrative wasn’t in any way predictable. Well worth a read!
