Q. Tell me about the book of Tisha, the wonderful true love story of a young teacher in the alaskan wilderness. -Joann
A. Ah…..a fellow reader! I have read Tisha several times. It is by Robert Specht and is about a young teacher in the ‘bush’ named Tisha Purdy. I believe ’tisha’ was the native children’s way of saying ‘teacher’ so she must have had another first name, but I can’t think of it right now. Sorry. Anyway, with the author’s name you should be able to find it at your local booksellers. There is a sequel, also, which was just published a very few years ago (two?). It was published by one of Tisha’s daughters. It is called Dark Boundary and is by Anne Purdy.
How many books do you read a year? I read at least a hundred fifty or more since I average about 3.5 books a week. I don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t read! My eyes are getting rather ‘iffy’. The thought has actually occured to me that maybe I should start learning Braille! I know I’d find some way to read!
If you want to let me know how you like Tisha….you can tell me at firstname.lastname@example.org Maybe I should be doing a book review blog! ha
