Susan Loomis' previous book, 'On Rue Tatin', was a delightful discovery, and every reader asked for more. Now in her follow-up book, 'Tarte Tatin', Susan Loomis shares more stories of how she, her husband and two children settled into life in a small French town and learned about their neighbours and how to be accepted as inhabitants of the town.
With her son at a French school and her husband looking for work in the town, Susan discovers the secrets of the French lifestyle - the markets and the food in particular - but also some of the difficulties for those who are not born French.
'Tarte Tatin' is a beautiful and delicious experience, transporting readers to a world where cobblestone lanes shirk commercialism in favour of cherished tradition. It provides a touching glimpse of the camaraderie, exquisite food and simple pleasures that is daily life in this truly glorious corner of Normandy.
