opposite the church, Father Reynaud identifies her as a serious danger to his flock especially as it is the beginning of Lent,
the traditional season of self-denial. War is declared as the priest denounces the newcomer's wares as the ultimate sin.As
a result, Vianne's plans for an Easter Chocolate Festival divide the whole community in a conflict that escalates into a 'Church
not Chocolate' battle. As mouths water in anticipation, can the solemnity of the Church compare with the pagan passion of
a chocolate eclair?
