Chocolat

4 1/2 stars

Ah, romance. This is one of those wonderfully romantic stories set in a foreign country and chronicling the unlikely romance between a precocious and strong willed woman and the devastatingly handsome and dangerous drifter. This story revolves around a chocolate shop which our heroin opens in a tiny, church-dominated town. She hits resistance at every turn, yet ends up changing the lives of everyone she meets. The book is short and sweet, and, like most good stories, has been made into a movie that falls far short of the written word (although Johnny Depp did play a fantastically handsome hero). A great weekend read for someone who needs a little infusion of love.
