Peaches for Monsieur le Curé
A welcome return to Lasquenet, the small town in rural France that was the setting for Joanne Harris's remarkable number one bestseller Chocolat.
It isn't often you receive a letter from the dead. When Vianne Rocher receives a letter from beyond the grave, she has no choice but to follow the wind that blows her back to Lansquenet, the village in which eight years ago, she opened up a chocolate shop.
But returning to her old home, Vianne is completely unprepared for what she is to find there. Women veiled in black, the scent of spices and peppermint tea - and there, on the bank of the river Tannes, facing the church, a minaret.

"It is so well paced, I couldn’t put it down, the characters are incredibly well-crafted and nuanced and the writing is so incredibly evocative - Joanne really makes the spices, sights and smells of the Arab world leap off the page."
- Eleanor Wood, International Sales & Marketing Director, Transworld Publishers & Random House Children's Books
"Threaded through with a riddle that keeps you guessing and wonderfully sensual descriptions of food, scents and sensations, this novel, while rather different from previous offerings, is one fans will savour and enjoy."
- Jane Vorster, You magazine
"Chocolat fans can rest easy. Harris may have moved on, but Vianne's magic has not dimmed and the latest instalment certainly casts a spell."
