Lansquenet-sous-Tannes--"a blip on the fast road between Toulouse and Bourdeaux"--and new home to Vianne Rocher, her six-year-old daughter Anouk, and Anouk's "imaginary" rabbit, Pantoufle. They arrive "on the wind of the carnival", and, a couple of days later, Vianne opens a luxuriant chocolate shop. "La Céleste Praline" bubbles over with the most tempting of confections, topped with an irresistible selection of rich, smooth chocolate drinks. It's Lent, the shop is opposite the church (which Vianne and Anouk don't attend) it's open on Sundays and Francis Reynaud, the austere parish priest with the "measuring, feline look" is not exactly happy.
As one by one the villagers sidle into the shop to sample Vianne's concoctions, we learn of their characters and secrets, their loves and desires, their troubles and hopes. Sad, polite Guillame and his dying dog. Shoplifting, beaten Joséphine Muscat. And Armande Voizin, still vigorous and perceptive in her 80s, who can see Pantoufle, and recognises Vianne for who she really is.

But Reynaud has his power base. And when Vianne advertises a Grand Festival of Chocolate to start on Easter Sunday, it's all-out war. War between church and chocolate.

Thank E-Mile for this book! Luckily you managed to find me in time, before I left. The book is going on my tbr-pile for a little while.

November 22nd, 2008: I just finished the book and I really enjoyed it. It is very lovely to get to know all the people in Lansquenet and how Viannne and her chocolate has an influence on everyone.

Thank you for the book! I read this ages ago and really enjoyed it, so I'm looking forward to re-reading it.

Re-read this last night and really enjoyed it. I read it a few years ago, and didn't really remember much about it. Think I will have to look out for the film coming on TV!

Sending to the decoy winner of the International Smile Day RABCK, which I organised.
