Joanne Harris returns to the  wonderful world of Chocolat. Eight years have passed, and some things are as they ever were in Lansquenet: the cobbled streets, the whitewashed church, the disused tanneries along the river. But some things have changed:  there, on the bank of the river Tannes, facing the church, is a minaret…

Whereas Chocolat was set in Lent, Peaches for  Monsieur le Curé is set in Ramadan and deals with similar themes of  prejudice, intolerance and religion.  Joanne Harris also writes of the magic  of everyday life, and has created a rich, delicious novel to read.
