Equally as good as Chocolat! This one would make an even better movie, with the suspense this story has. The character run true to the previous book. Several years have passed, and Vivianne now has a daughter who might be autistic - unsure of this, but many characteristics. The ending was worth waiting for, yet there still is a shadow of a doubt as the where Vivianne decides to settle.

A delightful and compelling tale of a woman drawn back to the 'scene of her crime' in Chocolate. The town has changed and the clash of the Muslim and Christian [well at least Western] cultures is beautifully woven into the story as Vivian finds a bit more about her own truth. Her magic is not so potent here. But her strength as a compassionate human saves the life and reputation of le Cure and rips back the hijab of a misogynist Muslim community before another generation of evil is sown. Nice closure to Viviane’s story. Great summer read.

Too long and drawn-out and not as absorbing as Harris' other works.

Loved this book. So descriptive and vivid. I felt I was in Lansquenet and that the scenes and scents had come to life. I found it hard to immerse myself out of it from time to time.

This is the third book set in Lansquenet. We met Vianne in Chocolat, and Lollipop Shoes. Ms. Harris writes like an old friend. Vianne is currently staying in Armande's house after receiving a letter from her (8 years after her death). Monsieur Le Cure is troubled with the immigration of a community of Muslims. This time it is not chocolat that brings everyone together, but the lovely peach tree outside Armande's home. Truly a heart warming book.
