When the widowed Framboise moves back to the village of Les Laveuses, where she grew up, she is pleased to discover that no-one recognises her. She soon forges a new life for herself there, and before long has established a profitable creperie.All is going well, until her profiteering nephew realises that money can be made by publishing a collection of Framboise's increasingly popular recipes, left to her by her mother, a woman despised throughout the village. For the book to be a success, her true identity must be revealed, opening the flood gates to a past life and painful childhood memories.

Joanne Harris never disappoints.

This is my first audio book. Thought it would be good for a car journey. It certainly was!

Interesting background for a unique story. Pity so short

A creative & individualistic story line. Good to see the French Resistance era from a different angle & reflect how easily life could lead one into being seen as one of "the baddies". Love Rula Lenska's delivery - as always. It's just a shame the story is so short (3 hours).
