The Chocolate Works
Sorry, there are not currently any articles available
Henry Dawson’s life is black and white. As a lawyer for the firm Terms & Conditions, Inc., Henry’s career-focused world is void of risks, mistakes, adventure and, for that matter, love… until the day he discovers that his distant uncle, Bartholomew Dawson, has died and left him a derelict, old chocolate factory in the tiny town of Farewell, New Mexico—population five.
When Henry arrives in Farewell, the sight of the tiny dustbowl in the middle of nowhere affirms his plans to sell the dilapidated chocolate works for scrap metal and return to New York as soon as possible. But fate has other ideas, and when Henry’s assistant Kitty Clementine shows up in town to inform Henry they’ve both been fired, Henry is faced with the choice of returning home and begging for their jobs back… or turning his uncle’s chocolate factory into the thriving business it once was.
With the help of Farewell’s residents—including Mildred MacBride, the lonely owner of the local diner; Thiago Hernandez, the widower who runs the general store with his entrepreneurial young daughter Lucia; and Olivia Odette, the reclusive old woman who lives on the hill—Henry will need more than determination and resourcefulness to turn a junk heap into a functioning chocolate factory. He’ll need to find the secret ingredient that made Bartholomew Dawson’s chocolates so magical and unique.
It’s a secret that only one person in Farewell can truly show him—a handsome drifter by the name of Levi Jones. A man who’s keeping a secret of his own. A man who might just be able to teach Henry that risks, mistakes, adventure and love… are the only ingredients that make life worth living.
