Blackberry Wine

Производитель: "Black Swan"

Everyday magic, he called it. The transformation of base matter into the stuff of dreams. Layman s alchemy. Jay Mackintosh is trapped by memory in the old familiar landscapes of his childhood, more enticing than the present, and to which he longs to return. A bottle of home-brewed wine left to him by a long-vanished friend seems to provide both the key to an old mystery and a doorway into another world. As the unusual properties of the strange brew take effect, Jay escapes to a derelict farmhouse in the French village of Lansquenet, where a ghost from the past waits to confront him, and the reclusive Marise haunted, lovely and dangerous hides a terrible secret behind her closed shutters. Between them, a mysterious chemistry. Or could it be magic?

Joanne Harris

Joanne Michèle Sylvie Harris (b. 3 July 1964, Barnsley, Yorkshire) is a British author. Born to a French mother and an English father in her grandparents' sweet shop, her family life was filled with food and folklore. Her great-grandmother was a known witch and healer. [cite web

] All of this was an environment that would play a key role as an adult in the development of her novels.

She was educated at Wakefield Girls High School, Barnsley Sixth Form College, and St Catharine's College, Cambridge, where she read Modern and Medieval Languages.

Her first novel, "The Evil Seed", was published in 1989, but it and a second novel published in 1993 met with only marginal success. In 1999, her whimsical though slightly dark and mystical story titled "Chocolat", based on food and an exotic locale in the Gers area of France, reached No. 1 in the "London Sunday Times" newspaper's bestseller list. The book was shortlisted for the 1999 Whitbread Novel of the Year Award and the movie rights sold to Miramax Pictures. The success of the motion picture, starring Juliette Binoche, brought Harris wide recognition in North America.

Her latest novel, "Runemarks", published August 2007, is her first book for children and young adults.
