“Waiting On” Wednesday (another first..)

I’ve never done one of these linky, meme, bloggy type things so let’s hope it all works out – well, hopefully no-one will die in the process…see, I copied the logo three times…oh, well better three than never…

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at http://breakingthespine.blogspot.com/, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I happened upon a new article by Joanne Harris here about her much anticipated forthcoming novel Peaches for Monsieur Le Cure.   Cue squees of delight all round!  I have devoured and relished almost all of Joanne’s previous novels and I cannot wait for this, the follow up to The Lollipop Shoes (US title was The Girl With No Shadow).

Peaches for Monsieur le Curé

  • Hardcover: 400 pages
  • Publisher: Doubleday (24 May 2012) UK – later in the US – sorry!
  • Synopsis

    It isn’t often you receive a letter from the dead. When Vianne Rocher receives a letter from beyond the grave, she has no choice but to follow the wind that blows her back to Lansquenet, the village in which eight years ago, she opened up a chocolate shop. But returning to her old home, Vianne is completely unprepared for what she is to find there. Women veiled in black, the scent of spices and peppermint tea – and there, on the bank of the river Tannes, facing the church, a minaret.
