Beautiful voice, lovely pace, TITA gives readers of all ages a portal into 1950s French life. Full disclosure: I read an early draft in manuscript, so delighted to read the entire novel in print. Marie Houzelle is a master of wit and understatement, yet she knows to get at what's most compelling to the human soul. Don't miss her short stories, some of which you can find online at NARRATIVE magazine.

This is a true delight: a French writer who has written in English (and thankfully not Latin!). Tita is a novel about a seven year old girl in a small Catholic town in the south of France set during the 1950s. It opens up to us a very different take on what France is like. The language is delightful, right down to Tita's glossary from her point of view! Tita is a courageous heroine who charms us in surprising ways.
