Five Quarters of the Orange
reviewed on + 524 more book reviews

Another great book by Joanne Harris, perhaps one of the best! Harris' writing will grab your senses; from darkness, joy, sadness & will have the reader questioning. Remnants of a diary are found by Framboise: her mother writes eerily/crazily, but at the same time great recipes. Framboise's family experiences during WWII, a drug-addicted mother. Framboise's running a 'creperie', Tomas the German soldier; Reinette and Cassis - Framboisse's siblings, their mother's craziness while growing up; - all will keep the reader captivated. Read to learn some answers about her mother's craziness, other details found within the diary... An excellent read!
