Chocolat

Who:  JoAnne Harris
When: autumn, winter, or spring
Where: by the fire or in the gentle sun

Why: Everyone’s seen the movie, which is wonderful (Johnny Depp is in it, for starters), but the book is even more wonderful. Includes some important themes that don’t convey to the screen, mostly the struggle of women within the boundaries of Christianity. This book is magic!
