Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated new blockbuster by the best-selling author of The Perfumer's Secret.

Alexandra Frobisher, a modern-thinking woman with hopes of a career in England's famous chocolate-making town of York, has received several proposals of marriage, although none of them promises that elusive extra: love. Matthew Britten-Jones is a man of charm and strong social standing. He impresses Alex and her parents with his wit and intelligence, but would an amicable union be enough for a fulfilling life together?

At the end of the war, Captain Harry Blakeney discovers a dead soldier in a trench in France. In the man's possession is a secret love note tucked inside a tin of chocolates that had been sent to the soldiers as a gift from the king. In pursuit of the author of this mysterious message, Harry travels to Rowntree's chocolate factory in England's north, where his life becomes inextricably bound with Alexandra and Matthew's. Only together will they be able to unlock secrets of the past and offer each other the greatest gift for the future.

From the battlefields of Northern France to the medieval city of York, this is a heartbreaking tale about a triangle of love in all its forms and a story about the bittersweet taste of life...and of chocolate.

    "Disappointing"

    Love this author and have read all her previous books but was a bit disappointed by this one. Found the story lacked substance and drama. Usually feel sad when finished but not this time.

    "Slightly Predictable but Generally Great Reading"

    I really enjoyed my first Fiona McIntosh novel. Alex Frobisher is perhaps the original rebel belle. A great read with an old world charm that is so very modern and topic at the same time.

    "Lovely story, and about beautiful York!"
    Would you listen to The Chocolate Tin again? Why?

    yes - and that's rare for me


    What other book might you compare The Chocolate Tin to, and why?

    hardly ever read romantic novels so can't really compare


    Have you listened to any of Katy Sobey’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    no
    She was very good
