Five Quarters Of Orange

Joanne Harris


Beyond the main street of Les Laveuses runs the Loire, smooth and brown as a sunning snake -- but hiding a deadly undertow beneath its moving surface. This is where Framboise, a secretive widow named after a raspberry liqueur, piles her culinary trade at the creperie -- and lets her memory play strange games. Into this world comes the threat of revelation as Framboise's nephew -- a profiteering Parisian -- attempts to exploit the growing success of the country recipes she has inherited from her mother, a woman remembered with contempt by the villagers of Les Laveuses. As the split blood of a tragic wartime childhood flows again, exposure beckons for Framboise, the widow with an invented past.
