Teaser Tuesdays: The Whistling Season


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig p. 10
"I will say for Miss Trent, whenever Milo Stoyanov and Martin Myrdal or the Johannson brothers and the Drobny male twins or some other combination blew up and went at each other, she would wade in and sort them out but good. However, plenty of fisticuffs and taunts and general incitement could take place by the time she ever managed to reach the scene, and those of us who a minute ago were neutrality personified might abruptly find ourselves on one side or the other, right in it."

One thing I really like about this book so far is how the names are very accurate to the time (1909) - I hate name anachronisms. Don't meet many Milos or Martins these days.

I listened to this book on audio book and loved it, with slight reservations on the ending. I love the brothers! And pretty much almost all of the kids in the school, as an ensemble.
