Product description

'Who died?' I said. 'Or is it a secret?' 'My mother, Vianne Rocher.' Seeking refuge and anonymity in the cobbled streets of Montmartre, Yanne and her two daughters live peacefully, if not happily, above their little chocolate shop. Nothing unusual marks them out; no red sachets hang by the door. The wind has stopped - at least for a while. Then into their lives blows Zozie de l'Alba, the lady with the lollipop shoes,ruthless, devious and seductive. With everything she loves at stake, Yanne must face a difficult choice; to flee, as she has done so many times before, or to confront her most dangerous enemy...Herself.

Customer reviews

By Mark Thwaite 10 Dec 2008 3

The Lollipop Shoes (known in the US as The Girl With No Shadow) is Joanne Harris's follow-up to her much-loved, bestselling novel Chocolat. Whilst not as sumptious or spell-binding as Chocolat, The Lollipop Shoes is still a magical and captivating story and will be hungrily swallowed by all of Harris's legion of fans.
Extravagant by name and extravagant by nature, Zozie de l'Alba suddenly arrives into the lives of Yanne and Annie (Chocolat's Vianne and Anouk). But, as so often in fairy tales, when a stranger arrives, they are not always everything that they seem. In Paris, in their new chocolate shop, Vianne and Anouk must protect their young daughter Rosette from threats that are very close to home.

Review quote

"Chocolat was a hard act to follow but Harris has managed it in style" DAILY EXPRESS "If Joanne Harris didn't exist, someone would have to invent her" SUNDAY EXPRESS "Harris is as good at portraying the agonies of motherhood as she is at evoking the scent of bitter chocolate laced with cinnamon and chilli" THE SUNDAY TIMES "This is Harris's best novel to date" FINANCIAL TIMES MAGAZINE "A delicious urban fairytale, where killer shoes and Aztec myths battle it out with true love and the seductive power of chocolate" DAILY MAIL
