Van Reid's Moosepath League novels will sweep you away to a joyful time and place, sparkling with lighthearted comedy, splendid writing, and a playful, romantic spirit.

Mrs. Roberto, the fourth installment of Van Reid's utterly charming Moosepath League series, begins as portly, jovial Tobias Walton continues to woo the elegant Phileda McCannon. But surprises are in store as Walton and his pal Sundry Moss become unexpected guests at the eccentric Fern Farm, where they become counselors to a downhearted pig and unintentional puzzlers of peculiar family secret. Meanwhile the members of the Moosepath League run afoul of Portland's toughest gangster and enlist an army of hoboes in their search for the elusive and possibly imperiled Mrs. Roberto. Soon kindness. heroism, and hilarious misunderstanding will bring them all together as witnesses to a frightening natural disaster.

About the Author:

Van Reid's family has lived in Edgecomb, Maine, since the 1800s. Reid was a long-time bookseller and lives with his wife and children in a house Reid and his brother built on their family's land. His series of novels about the Moosepath League--of which Mollie Peer is the second--take place in the late 1800s on coastal Maine.

From Publishers Weekly:

Reid returns with the fourth rousing installment in his series featuring the bumbling but well-intentioned members of the Moosepath League of Portland, Maine, circa 1897. Comic, ruefully romantic and ever so tongue-in-cheek, this genteel and entertaining if sometimes meandering farce once again chronicles the league's lighter-than-air antics. Though Chairman Tobias Walton has faithfully promised his fiancee, Miss Phileda McCannon, that he will "enter no intrigues, nor court unusual company" while she's out of town, he and his faithful assistant, Sundry Moss, can't help addressing the mystery of depressed Hercules, a pig once the very soul of Fern Farm. Meanwhile, a trio of Tobias's fellow Moosepathians-Joseph Thump, Christopher Eagleton and Matthew Ephram-engage in an adventure of their own. When they attend While She Waits in Silence, a play with a very intriguing second act, they become convinced that Mrs. Roberto, a celebrated Ascensionist (she parachutes from a hot-air balloon "in her attractive suit of tights"), must be rescued from some unknown peril. Soon, Thump's humble look-alike, Thaddeus Q. Spark (proprietor of the Faithful Mermaid), and Mailon Ring, a mysterious street urchin, are involved in this comedy of errors, which is further complicated by Fuzz Hadley and his vile gang. Reid has carved a niche for himself with his Victorian spoofs, redolent of New England and full of derring-do and old-fashioned romance, and he is in top form with this latest series entry.
