FL 'We came on the wind of the carnival.'

When an exotic stranger, Vianne Rocher, arrives in the French village of Lansquenet and opens a chocolate boutique directly opposite the church, Father Reynaud identifies her as a serious danger to his flock - especially as it is the beginning of Lent, the traditional season of self-denial. War is declared as the priest denounces the newcomer's wares as the ultimate sin.

Suddenly, Vianne's shop-cum-cafe means that there is somewhere for secrets to be whispered, grievances to be aired, dreams to be tested. But 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?

Hello Chocolat!
In my 'One For Autumn ' Bookbox when it came home.
I've had several copies of this, one of my all time favourites, pass through my hands. I don't think that I have a copy at the moment though so it may be staying with me for a while.

Thank you so much lellie, for sending me this book. I liked your journal entry for it from March 2010. Now it is my turn to say "Hello Chocolat"! I hope it will be one of my favourites too. Thanks also for the lovely bookmark and the lovely postcard. I can almost taste lime juice every time I look at it! This was very generous of you as usual, and much appreciated.

9 out of 10

I loved it !! What a great author. I loved the way she wrote this. I could almost taste and smell the chocolates.
I loved the story and I found the end a bit sad. I was sorry to have finished reading this book as I enjoyed it so much!
