    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.

    What did you love best about Peaches for Father Francis?

    The combination of Harris' story and Roula Lenska's performance was superb. I saved listening to it so that it would seem to last longer. On one level the book continues the story of Vianne and her daughters revisiting the village that was the scene of the movie "Chocolate. However, the book also involves the issues of race and immigration/assimulation, predjudice and religious beliefs.
