Overview

Tish by Mary Roberts Rinehart

It is doubtful if Aggie and I would have known anything about Tish's plan had Aggie not seen the advertisement in the newspaper. She came to my house at once in violent excitement and with her bonnet over her ear, and gave me the newspaper clipping to read. It said:

"Wanted: A small donkey. Must be gentle, female, and if possible answer to the name of Modestine. Address X 27, Morning News."

"Well," I said when I had read it, "did you insert the advertisement or do you propose to answer it?"

About the Author

Rinehart is considered the source of the phrase "The butler did it" from her novel The Door (1930), although the novel does not use the exact phrase. Rinehart is also considered to have invented the "Had-I-But-Known" school of mystery writing, with the publication of The Circular Staircase (1908).

Tish was published in 1917. It is a laugh out loud story of three middle aged, turn of the century ladies who have some fun adventures. Tish is way ahead of her time and feels that she can do anything 'especially with the help of a little blackberry cordial'. If you enjoy a clean, fun read, this book is highly recommended.

I read this book 60 years ago and it still made me laugh today. This version is poorly edited or unedited. Tish and her two companion middle-agers are so much fun and their repartee is hilarious at times. The obligatory romance in each story is dated but the three ladies are priceless.
