June 2012 Book of the Month.

A fascinating novel. In one way comforting, as you find yourself back in the village of Lansquenet-sous-Tannes for a third time (Chocolat and The Lollipop Shoes). In another challenging and a little unsettling, as Harris addresses how the religion of Islam can be used as an excuse for segregation and certain behaviour. Unsurprisingly it is handled incredibly well and she delivers a satisfying read that we think would be a great reading group choice as well.

Peaches for Monsieur le Cure Synopsis

It isn't often you receive a letter from the dead. When Vianne Rocher receives a letter from beyond the grave, she has no choice but to follow the wind that blows her back to Lansquenet, the village in which eight years ago, she opened up a chocolate shop.



But returning to her old home, Vianne is completely unprepared for what she is to find there. Women veiled in black, the scent of spices and peppermint tea - and there, on the bank of the river Tannes, facing the church, a minaret.
