about

When Framboise Simon returns to a small village on the banks of the Loire, the locals do not recognize her as the daughter of the infamous woman they hold responsible for a tragedy during the German occupation years ago. But the past and present are inextricably entwined, particularly in a scrapbook of recipes and memories that Framboise has inherited from her mother. And soon Framboise will realize that the journal also contains the key to the tragedy that indelibly marked that summer of her ninth year. . . .

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Enjoyed One thing I will say about Joanne Harris is that her writing is complex. The twists and turns from past to present are intriguing and while you can follow them, she has a knack for surprises. Four Quarters of the Orange is about Framboise Simon, now grown, and her relationship with her deceased mother and how that relationship shaped who she is and the decisions she makes. Upon her mother's death, Framboise is left with her mother's recipe book which also served as a diary of sorts. When Framboise returns home to her village, she begins to explore the diary and piece together her mother's life. She does this after moving into the dilapidated family farm, restoring it and opening a small restaurant in it out of which she serves her mother's favourite recipes.
