*************************************************************************

'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.


The Lollipop Shoes
follows on from Chocolat. The story continues in Peaches for Monsieur le Cure and The Strawberry Thief.
