'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...

About Joanne Harris

Joanne Harris is one of our best-loved and most versatile novelists. She first appeared on the scene with the bestselling Chocolat (made into an Oscar-nominated film with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp), which turned into the sensuous Lansquenet trilogy (with Lollipop Shoes and Peaches for Monsieur le Cure). She has since written acclaimed novels in such diverse genres as fantasy based on Norse myth (Runemarks, Runelight, The Gospel of Loki), and the Malbry cycle of dark psychological thrillers (Gentlemen & Players, Blueeyedboy, and now Different Class).

Born in Barnsley, of an English father and a French mother, she spent fifteen years as a teacher before (somewhat reluctantly) becoming a full-time writer. In 2013, she was awarded an MBE. She lives in Yorkshire, plays bass in a band first formed when she was sixteen, works in a shed in her garden, spends far too much time online and occasionally dreams of faking her own death and going to live in Hawaii.

Our customer reviews

<p><a href="">The Lollipop Shoes</a> (known in the US as <em>The Girl With No Shadow</em>) is Joanne Harris's follow-up to her much-loved, bestselling novel <a href="">Chocolat</a>. Whilst not as sumptious or spell-binding as <a href="">Chocolat</a>, <a href="">The Lollipop Shoes</a> is still a magical and captivating story and will be hungrily swallowed by all of Harris's legion of fans.</p> <p>Extravagant by name and extravagant by nature, Zozie de l'Alba suddenly arrives into the lives of Yanne and Annie (<a href="">Chocolat</a>'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. </p>show more
