Chocolat by Joanne Harris

Even in a small provincial French town, nothing is quite as simple as it appears. Vianne arrives as a stranger, mysterious and exotic, with a touch of witchcraft. Her presence, her beliefs, and her chocolate threaten to forever change the status quo of this community, as she fights against prejudice and persecution, offering honesty and compassion.
