Peaches for Monsieur le Curé

By

Doubleday 464pp £18.99 order from our bookshop

In 1999 Joanne Harris made her name with her third novel, Chocolat. None of her books since then has had quite the same effect, particularly not the disappointing psychological thriller blueeyedboy. In Peaches for Monsieur le Curé Harris returns not only to the characters of Chocolat – these have already been revisited in The Lollipop Shoes – but also to the setting, Lansquenet, a village in the south of France. Perhaps she should never have gone away.
