The Strawberry Thief by Joanne Harris

The compelling new novel from the author of the bestselling Chocolat.

Vianne Rocher has settled down.  Lansquenet-sous-Tannes, the place that once rejected her, has finally become her home.  With Rosette, her ‘special’ child, she runs her chocolate shop in the square, talks to her friends on the river, is part of the community.  Even Reynaud, the priest, has become a friend.

But when old Narcisse, the florist, dies, leaving a parcel of land to Rosette and a written confession to Reynaud, the life of the sleepy village is once more thrown into disarray.  The arrival of Narcisse’s relatives, the departure of an old friend and the opening of a mysterious new shop in the place of the florist’s across the square – one that mirrors the chocolaterie, and has a strange appeal of its own – all seem to herald some kind of change: a confrontation, a turbulence – even, perhaps, a murder…

Peer & Press Reviews

With The Strawberry Thief Harris proves that earlier episodes of Chocolat were only the first tiers in an expanding box of delights.  But just as she reveals new layers in her mysterious, magical world she also opens a doorway to darkness.  Mark her down as a sweet tooth at your peril, for there’s a sharp bite too.  I devoured it in one go.

Christopher Fowler author of the Bryant & May series

Compelling, captivating, incredibly moving, The Strawberry Thief whirls you into a thrilling world you will never forget.  Harris’s Vianne is as unforgettable and courageous as ever, and Lansquenet-sous-Tannes is depicted with such heart and beautiful detail that it is marvellously alive – as everything in the village changes overnight.  I loved this book.  A perfect novel that shimmers with brilliance and truth.

Kate Williams, author of the De Witt Family series

Sometimes you don’t need to worry about a novel at all.  You open the book, start reading, and find that it’s sheer pleasure from start to finish.  The Strawberry Thief is a delight.

James Runcie, author of the Grantchester Mysteries series
