First edition. Signed by the author. Fine in dust jacket. Five years have passed since Chocolat, the story of a woman (or is she a witch?) who, with her six-year-old daughter, moves into the little village of Lansquenet and opens a chocolate shop at the wrong time incurring the wrath of the local priest. Since then, things have changed. Seeking refuge and anonymity in the cobbled streets of Montmartre, Yanne and her daughters, Rosette and Annie, are living peacefully and happily, above their little chocolate shop. Nothing unusual makes them stand out. The wind has stopped blowing - for a while. Then into their lives blows Zozie de l'Alba, the lady with the lollipop shoes, and everything begins to change. Beautiful, passionate, ruthless, and devious, Zozie de l'Alba has plans of her own - plans that will shake their world to pieces. 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.
