Overview

Peaches for Father Francis: A Novel by Joanne Harris

The tantalizing sequel to the blockbuster New York Times bestseller Chocolat

Even before it was adapted into the Oscar-nominated film starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp, Joanne Harris’s Chocolat entranced readers with its mix of hedonism, whimsy, and, of course, chocolate. Now, at last, Chocolat’s heroine returns to the beautiful French village of Lansquenet in another, equally beguiling tale.

When Vianne Rocher receives a letter from beyond the grave, she has no choice but to return to Lansquenet, where she once owned a chocolate shop and learned the meaning of home. But returning to one’s past can be a dangerous pursuit, and Vianne and her daughters find the beautiful French village changed in unexpected ways: women veiled in black, the scent of spices in the air, and—facing the church—a minaret. Most surprising of all, her old nemesis, Francis Reynaud, desperately needs her help. Can Vianne work her magic once again?

I read "Chocolat" years ago and loved the characters, especially Vianne. I eventually found "The Girl With No Shadow" and was equally impressed with that story, and now "Peaches for Father Francis" - I loved them all. Just the right amountn of "magic" and a feel good book as well. Vianne always has a way of helping those around her. I have other books by this author in my "wish list" and hope to get to them soon.

I really liked this book, the third in the series that started with Chocolat. It's a very engaging and fun read (without being mindless or frothy). It's also more suspenseful than I expected. Some very dramatic surprises near the end, too! I'd recommend this to anyone who liked Chocolat.

The continuing saga of the "psychic" chocolatier and her family. Cannot wait for the next episode. I am wondering if she will return to her old store and old friends. Very entertaining.

Joanne Harris revisits the characters from her hit book Chocolat, years after they moved to Paris. Her children, Roux, Father Francis and many other characters are back in the French town of Lasquenet. The town has changed a lot since Vivienne moved away, and she gets to know many of the new Muslim families. There is a mystery woman with a big secret that will have you guessing until the end. Very well written as usual. I can't believe that Ms. Harris is not wildly popular in the US. The magic in her books is a real treasure.

There is no good reason for an e-book that costs more than a paperback to have less editing and proofreading than a printed copy would. Distracting typographical errors, lower-case instead of capitals at the beginning of sentences, odd spaces in the middle of the page-- There is no excuse. Buy the book in print.

I loved Chocolat and that French Village it took place in . I was a little unsure of this book holding up to my love of the first book. But it did. This book is as good as Chocolat. Alot of the same characters and some great new ones.

finally finished father francis' saga...lots and lots of characters in this read...found myself flipping back to recall just who was who and related to whom....good story definitely a recommended read...descriptive and detailed..sometimes repetitive, but enjoyable and quite informative multiculturally...it did hold my interest but toward the end of the 400 plus pages i got tired of it and wanted to get to the bottom line....period
