    The holiday film A Christmas Story, first released in 1983, has become a bona fide Christmas perennial, gaining in stature and fame with each succeeding year. Its affectionate, wacky, and wryly realistic portrayal of an American family's typical Christmas joys and travails in small-town Depression-era Indiana has entered our imagination and our hearts with a force equal to It's a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street.

    Any additional comments?

    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 beautiful French village in which eight years ago she opened a chocolate shop and first learned the meaning of home. But returning to one's past can be a dangerous pursuit. Vianne, with her daughters, Anouk and Rosette, finds Lansquenet changed in unexpected ways: 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. Most surprising of all, her old nemesis, Father Francis Reynaud, desperately needs her help.

    judy says: "Charming and thoughtful."
    "An excellent story"

    Story
    Would you listen to Peaches for Father Francis again? Why?

    I have listened to "Peaches" twice already. I love Joanne Harris' style and the readers really make the book come alive.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Peaches for Father Francis?

    I love when Vianne takes in a girl in trouble with no questions asked. I also like the friendship that develops between her and the curee despite past events.


    Have you listened to any of Rula Lenska and Gareth Armstrong ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first book I've listened to by these readers.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes; I listened as I cooked dinner, folded laundry and waited for my son during his art lessons.
