Adult Book Club (The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig) at Central

Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Discuss, "The Whistling Season" by Ivan Doig. "Can't cook but doesn't bite," so begins the newspaper ad offering the services of an "A-1 housekeeper, sound morals, exceptional disposition" that draws the attention of widower Oliver Milliron in the fall of 1909. That unforgettable season deposits the ever-whistling Rose Llewellyn and her font-of-knowledge brother, Morris Morgan, in Marias Coulee along with a stampede of homesteaders drawn by the promise the Big Ditch, a gargantiuan irrigation program intended to make the Montana prairies bloom.
