It has been quite a while since I read Chocolat, but I don't remember it being so heavily laden with witchcraft as this sequel is. Vianne from Chocolat has changed her name to Yanne and is selling chocolate again in this story. Another main character, new in this sequel, arrives wearing what Yanne's daugher calls "Lollipop Shoes". (I understand the book was sold in the UK under the title "Lollipop Shoes".) This new character is actively practicing withcraft, and Yanne's daughter spends a lot of time with her and becomes very attached to her. Too much so. Despite Vianne having sworn off using any magic, she finds that she may need to use her "powers" in order to save her daughter. Personally, I didn't enjoy the book as much as I did Chocolat. But it was still worth reading.
