Paperback review: Peaches for Monsieur Le Cure, By Joanne Harris


The final volume in Harris’s Chocolat trilogy finds witchy heroine, Vianne Rocher, returning to Lansquenet-sous-Tannes.

Since her last visit, a new North African community has sprung up and a minaret now graces the  skyline. Father Reynaud, Vianne’s one time adversary, is facing dissent within his flock.

As a wave of  xenophobic intolerance sweeps across France, Vianne finds herself coming to the cure’s aid. As ever feast and famine, magic and mysticism are at the heart of Harris’s storytelling. Fans won’t be disappointed by this freshly minted confection.
