Power Reviewer BeckyH

A perfect picture of perfect hardship
The picture of hardships on a “dry” farm in 1909 Montana is clearly shown in this delightful story of motherless family trying to survive and the brother/sister couple who answer their ad for a housekeeper.

Homesteading, social life, family life, shenanigans, love, one room schools and the teachers who make them, and secrets, especially secrets, combine to make this a delightful, well-written tale that encompasses humor, fear, sacrifice and boyhood.
Diane B

The Whistling Season
This book really surprised me. Very delightful, smart, endearing and surprising. I highly recommend it.
