Product Details


Praise for Peaches for Monsieur le Curé

“Worth immersing yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of Lansquenet’s narrow 200-year-old streets.”—The Washington Post

“Readers familiar with the Rochers will welcome the newest installment of their story, particularly as it addresses contemporary problems in a familiar setting.”—Publishers Weekly, Pick of the Week


“A slow buildup to a breathtaking finish.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Harris’s skill at vibrantly depicting the charm and eccentricity of rural French life is at the heart of this delightful novel.”—Library Journal

Praise from the UK for Peaches for Monsieur le Curé

“Her characteristic love affair with texture – scents, smells and sounds – immerses the reader in a bath of seductive imagery in a brave and grippingly confected story.”—Sunday Times

“Like Chocolat, this book is a feast for the senses. Every page of the book is steeped in scents, colours and tastes, without ever tipping into the pretentious or showy.  The writing is seductive and engaging throughout; and the magic, too, is intrinsic without ever being soppy or embarrassing. What is magic (or religion), after all, if not an ability to understand the human heart? Peaches for Father Francis is a wonderful return to form for Harris.”—Literary Review

“A delightful jumble of the sensuous sights, sounds and smells the author describes so well.”—Glamour

“Expertly crafted, typically mouthwatering.”—Daily Mail

“An enchanting read, ripe for summer picking.”—France Magazine

“A wide-ranging, powerful and very readable novel. I loved it.”—Viv Groskop, Red

“Fasting and feasting, magic and mysticism are once again at the heart of this author’s storytelling sorcery.”—The Lady

“Absorbing and atmospheric…Joanne bravely tackles religious differences head-on but very sensitively. It’s expressive, rich, vibrant and even shocking in parts.”—Heat Magazine
