Synopsis

Julia's Chocolates by Cathy Lamb

There are times in your life when only chocolate will do...When Julia Bennett leaves her abusive fiance at the altar, she knows life will never be the same again. Seeking comfort, she heads to her Aunt Lydia's rambling farmhouse where she is welcomed by an eccentric, warm, and wise group of women. Meeting once a week for drinks and the baring of souls, it becomes clear that every woman holds secrets that keep her from happiness. What will it take for them to become their true selves? For Julia, it's chocolate. All her life, baking has been her therapy and her refuge, a way to heal wounds and make friends. But it can't keep her safe. As Julia gradually opens her heart to a new life, with new friendships, and a new love, the past is catching up to her. And this time, she'll have to face it head on.
