The story centers around Angélique who makes beautiful chocolates, carefully infused with all the emotion that seems to overwhelm her in daily life. Jean-René runs a chocolate factory that is running out of steam. Both seek help from the usual sources: Jean-René favors self-help tapes, and Angélique joins a support group. Filled with all the joy and pain it takes to love and survive in the modern world, Romantics Anonymous
is a tale that will lift any heart. Read The New York Times story
