This is a sequel to "Chocolat", a darker story told by three characters: Anouk/Annie; Vianne/Yanne; and Zozie (the images at the top of each chapter are different for each character,so it's pretty easy to follow).
As in all her books the descriptions of places and foods are wonderful, Harris takes you there and you can almost taste the wonderful delicacies she describes. While still retaining the magic of a fairy tale,with a classic good vs evil theme,it explores the subject of perception,of seeing what we want to see versus what really is and the difficulty of telling the difference.
"Chocolat" is not my favorite of Harris books, and I did like this better,even if I found the ending not completely satisfying.


Worth reading,but maybe disappointing if you
expect Chocolat #2.
