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.

Excellent

A thoroughly enjoyable book by this author. Found it a power story and how a woman enpowered herself. Found myself really involved in the story. Excellent narration.

Chocolate always makes things better

Reading books set during WW1 always makes me sad with the loss of life of so many beautiful, innocent, young men and the suffering of mothers, sisters & daughters left behind. This story, although a predictable ending, did give an insight into the struggles of relationships and the sacrifices made by so many. I didn't think I would enjoy this book as much as I did as the first couple of chapters were a little slow, but well worth persisting.

Yummy all the way thru

Easy listening and enjoyment from a fairly fast paced story line. A lot of ground is covered from the start of WW1 to a few years after and with many threads that are all brought together beautifully. Really enjoyed how well some of the scenes are described providing an insight into the life of a female during and after the war and the start of more women with career ideas. Also caught a few crossovers from other novels eg the tailors girl which I just love those subtle connections.

I smelt the chocolate from chapter one.

Another great story from Fiona McIntosh. Katy's reading gave each character a true personality. The hardships of WWI and sacrifices made by men and women for love are beautifully written in this book.
