Tales of the Titmouse is written to anyone whose life has been touched by the heartache of addiction. For addicts who are lost and hopeless. For their loved ones who feel like God doesn't hear their prayers. It is a memoir, a look into the dangerous world of drug smuggling through the eyes of a 23 year old woman. The story of a young woman looking for love, looking for purpose, and trying to fill the emptiness she feels inside with all the wrong things. Pamela's journey through the darkness of the drug world is a testament to the power of a mother's prayer and the faithfulness of God.

When I was reading Pamela Barrett's Tales of the Titmouse, I kept flipping to the back cover and looking at her photo in incredulity. I looked into her eyes, asking, "However did you survive? However did you have the courage? The audacity? The plain-old-fashioned cahones to defy authority? I mean, look at your sweet face!"
Repeatedly, I resumed reading, more and more convinced that not only is Pamela's a miracle story, but also a heroine tale. Follow me here--yes, she broke the law and lived an unbelievably dramatic life, but she persevered, she overcame, and most importantly, she lived to tell the tale.
I think this is a very important work. I read it because I was interested in what life was like for a former drug smuggler--turned Christian gramma. But I can see it being very a therapeutic read for anyone who was in that lifestyle or knows someone who was/is.
Superbly written, with a lovely voice and writing style, I can recommend this book with confidence to anyone who enjoys memoirs.
