Waterstones Says

Borne in on a breeze of magic, mystery and (of course) chocolate, Joanne Harris ends a seven-year break from her Chocolat series as new eddies stir the sleepy village of Lansquenet-sous-Tannes as Viannne Rocher returns. As new rivalries emerge, conflict threatens to erupt into violence, and even murder in a novel that’s both a treat for fans and an ideal doorway for new readers.  

Signed Special Edition

This edition includes an exclusive afterword about revisiting Chocolat, and a short story, The Cat Child.

The compelling new novel from the author of the bestselling Chocolat.

Vianne Rocher has settled down. Lansquenet-sous-Tannes, the place that once rejected her, has finally become her home. With Rosette, her 'special' child, she runs her chocolate shop in the square, talks to her friends on the river, is part of the community. Even Reynaud, the priest, has become a friend.

But when old Narcisse, the florist, dies, leaving a parcel of land to Rosette and a written confession to Reynaud, the life of the sleepy village is once more thrown into disarray. The arrival of Narcisse's relatives, the departure of an old friend and the opening of a mysterious new shop in the place of the florist's across the square - one that mirrors the chocolaterie, and has a strange appeal of its own - all seem to herald some kind of change: a confrontation, a turbulence - even, perhaps, a murder...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Mouthwatering... a feelgood book of the first order... your senses are left reeling. Read it.' - The Observer on Chocolat

'Is this the best book ever written? Truly excellent... Harris's achievement is not only in her story, in her insight and humour and the wonderful picture of small-town life in rural France, but also in her writing.' - The Literary Review on Chocolat

'Sensuous and thought-provoking... subtle and brilliant.' - The Daily Telegraph on Chocolat

“A good read, even if you've never read Chocolat...”

I've never read Chocolat - or its two sequels - but found this worked perfectly well as a standalone novel.

Vianne and her younger daughter are happily settled in the small town of Lansquenet-sous-Tannes. Vianne... More
