“The Whistling Season” is full of secrets. Of course there is the big secret at the end about Rose and Morrie. I won’t ruin the ending for those of you who haven’t read to the end.  But, what about all the other secrets, the backwards horse race, the Halley’s comet program? Do you remember other secrets in the book?

  1. Speaking of the big secret at the end, it would be nice to discuss that in another posting. I found it rather unsettling and out-of-character for the boys to keep that secret from their father, and wonder what others think about that.

  2. In the very beginning, the family tried to keep it a secret that they were trying to hire a housekeeper.

    Later, they tried to keep secret the fact that she didn’t cook.

    At the “First Wednesday” discussion here in Callaway County, we talked about how hard it is to have family secrets when there are young children in the house.
