Black Swan, £7.99
Paperback review: Peaches for Monsieur Le Cure, By Joanne Harris
Friday 22 March 2013
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.
