Description

Jay chooses to abandon the possibility of hugely increased wealth and fame in favour of a simpler life.

The books featured on this site are aimed primarily at readers aged 13 or above and therefore you must be 13 years or over to sign up to our newsletter. Jay goes on a journey of faith and self discovery, learning how to trust in himself and others, believe in magic and that anything is possible as he once did as a child. Blackberry Wine is written as a piece of commercial fiction, but has definite elements of fantasy that feel out of place. Blackberry Wine is in a sense a follow-on to Chocolat*, in that it takes place in and around the same French village with a few of the same characters popping into the story. Joanne Harris' prose is always easy to read, really clear, and I can believe in the characters she creates at least enough to carry on to the very last page.

In Five Quarters of the Orange, this bold female character is Mirabelle Dartigen, the mother of present-day narrator Framboise Simon.

Her hobbies are listed in Who's Who as 'mooching, lounging, strutting, strumming, priest-baiting and quiet subversion'. Jay begins to come to terms with his past as he relaxes in his new surroundings and learns the truth about some of his neighbours.I picked this book up on a whim, not because it was Joanne Harris, but because it had the word Wine in the title and I thought it would be a good present for Pumpjack. Joanne Harris is an Anglo-French author, whose books include fourteen novels, two cookbooks and many short stories.
