Van Reid takes us back to late nineteenth century Maine and the early days of the Moosepath League in this wonderful new addition to the Moosepath series. In this tale, we find the League separated from its kindly leader Mister Walton and his "gentleman's gentleman" Sundry Moss when the two men decide to pay a visit to Sundry's home in Edgecomb. While they are busy at Moss Farm with uncertain engagements, ghostly apparitions and thwarted romance, the remainder of the League finds becomes involve ...more

Mr. Reid does it again! He constantly amazes me with his talent to go off in different directions with his books, and yet be successful in his storytelling! This one's pace seems slower than some of the others, but don't let that stop you, as it's a wonderful tale with SO much insight into the characters that I'm beginning to feel like they are old friends. Highly recommended and the epilogue hints that there's another great adventure in the offing! (Did I mention that the book is highly recomme ...more

A book that ambles amiably along, guided by prose that warms the proceedings with style and grace.

Why, oh why don't these have a wider audience? They are lighthearted, delightful and bring me great happiness.I was worried that Reid would have a hard time writing a prequel (this falls between his original 2 stories although it was written after the 5th (?). I shouldn't have worried. He inserted this seamlessly into the continuity and made me want to meet all these people all the more. New characters were delightful. Tell everyone to read this book (after Cordelia Underwood of course)!

I am very disappointed with this book. I requested our head librarian to order the book, and she had some difficulties finding copies for sale.
I was so excited when it came in! UGH.
First,the print is small and fills most of the page. The character plot is confusing and not enjoyable. The previous Moosepath League books were witty, funny and full of historical knowledge of the Portland area. I just could not finish this!

I loved this! It's the latest in a series about the wonderful members of the Moosepath League, gentlemen of Maine in the late 1890s who get themselves into the most convoluted scrapes in the most innocent ways. Reid's descriptive style of writing takes you right into their world. How long do I have to wait for the next adventure?!

I love these books! Just had to go and re-read the whole set. Can't wait for the story to continue. Great for anyone who loves Dickens or PG Wodehouse.

Van Reid is one of my favorite authors. I have read all his books and they all are hilarious, thought provoking, and simply a delight to read. When a book makes you actually laugh out loud and look around to see if any one heard you, you know you have a wonderful story teller. His descriptive prose and delightful interchange between characters is what makes you think of the book even after having finished. I would highly recommend.
