one of my favourites....

I have just finished reading this book - again. I'm not sure how many times I've read it now but every time I pick up on different elements in there. It is a truly delicious read! Since becoming a mum I find I get precious little time to curl up with a book - something I crave as I love to read - but I stole time for this book. I read it while I rocked my son to sleep at all hours of the night, I even set off early to pick my daughter up from nursery so I could take my book and cram in a few minutes:)

It's written by the author of 'Chocolat', it's not so much a sequel as a return to the lives of the main characters. This is a much darker book than Chocolat, with more 'peril' and darker magic.

If you haven't tried these titles I highly recommend them. If you have only seen the film 'Chocolat'- it really goes against the grain to knock Johnny Depp and Juliet Binoche - but it pales in comparison to the book.

(Apparently in the US it has been published as 'The Girl With No Shadow'. I do think 'The Lollipop Shoes' is much more tantalising:)
