Chocolat by Joanne Harris

chocolatIn a pious little French village in the 1960s, an unconventional, free-spirited single mother opens a chocolaterie during Lent. One-by-one, she changes and enriches the lives of the closed-off townspeople, infuriating the town’s traditional mayor. This novel may appeal to chefs and chocolate lovers alike, and reads quite differently than the charming film based off of it.
