A few days after settling into town, she opens up a confectionery shop across the street from the house of worship - shortly after the beginning of Lent. While the townspeople are supposed
to be abstaining from worldly pleasures, she tempts them with unusual and delicious chocolate creations, using her expert touch to create just the right candy to break down each customer's resistance.
