"I've hurt my arm, Lizzie," she said. "I wish you'd come out and crank the car."
"You'd better stay at home with an arm like that," I replied stiffly.
"Very well, I'll crank it myself."
"Where are you going?"

If you are in the mood for a lighthearted, uncomplicated read, this is the book for you. Tish is the story of three 'elderly' (in their 50s!) ladies led by the indomitable Tish. Tish, an independent sort, backs a local automobile race, chases spies in Canada, helps a Syrian immigrant, and helps love find a way.
