The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig (2006)

“Can’t cook, but doesn’t bite” attracts widower Oliver Milliron to the job advertisement of a for a housekeeping position in 1909 Montana. What follows is a delightful story about the family of father and three sons, their housekeeper and her brother, who takes the job as the school teacher in the one room school. Doig’s language is breathtaking, his descriptions of eastern Montana a delight, and the reader learns a little about homesteading in the early 20th century.
