Amazon Editorial Review

Try me...test me...taste me...A tantalizing tale about the ultimate sinful luxury: that dark mistress, chocolate. 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 is somewhere for secrets to be whispered, grievances to be aired, dreams to be tested. But her plans for an Easter Chocolate Festival divide the whole community 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? Rich, clever and mischievous, CHOCOLAT is a feast for all the senses.
