The Chocolate Tin

At the end of the war an English officer leading a clearing party through northern France discovers a dead soldier in a trench. In the man’s possession is a secret love note, tucked inside a tin of chocolate that had been sent to the soldiers as a gift. In pursuit of the author of this mysterious message, Harry travels to Rowntree’s chocolate factory in England’s north, where his life becomes inextricably bound with a couple, Alexandra and Matthew. Only together will they be able to unlock secrets of the past and offer each other the greatest gift for the future.

This is a heartbreaking tale about a triangle of love in all of its forms and a story about the bittersweet taste of life…and of chocolate.

The image (right) is the original chocolate tin I held in York, when the story came crashing into my mind. This is one of the chocolate tins retrieved from the WWI battlefront.
