In the winter of 1920, a quirky bequest draws Morrie Morgan back to Butte, Montana, from a year-long honeymoon with his bride Grace. But the mansion bestowed by a former boss upon the itinerant charmer, who debuted in Doig's bestselling "The Whistling Season," promises to be less windfall than money pit. Dilemmas catapult Morrie into his new career as editorialist for the Thunder, the fledgling union newspaper.

Ivan Doig has been one of my favorite writers. He tried to be funny in this one. He isn't funny.

Morrie Morgan and new wife Grace are back in Butte, living in the Sandison mansion and with Morrie at work on the labor-supportive newspaper, the Thunder. Labor shenanigans drive the plot of this tale with lots of verbal skirmishes from Morrie, the editorial writer.

I like the characters in this now third book with Morrie center stage. This one fell a little short for me with all the old-time news writing, although there?s much to love with the literary references between Morrie and the book-loving library director Sandison. Doig knows and loves the West; so do I.
