Fiddler's Green, Or, A Wedding, A Ball, and the Singular Adventure of Sundry MossBook - 2004
Devoted fans of the endearing characters in Van Reids nineteenth-century Maine are in for a fabulous summer treat with Fiddlers Greenan old-fashioned mulligatawny of high and low comedy, unabashed romance, adventure, and eerie mystery. Escape to a seemingly simpler world and visit Maine in 1897, where Reids evocative, expansive writing delivers the fifth escapade in the saga of the Moosepath League and a host of supporting characters whom readers have come to love.Opening with a long-awaited wedding, this delightful yarn features a society ball, a kidnapping, and a mystical rural netherworld where a bitter family feud comes close to causing the death of the preternaturally cool Mr. Sundry Moss. With its signature mix of romantic yearning, knockabout comedy, and touching drama, Fiddlers Greenis sure to please fans and newcomers alike as they keep company with the honorable Gentlemen of the Club. Fiddlers Greenis a worthy successor to its wonderfully reviewed predecessor, Mrs. Roberto: It would be a crime and a sin, and just plain un-neighborly, to miss this novel (Kirkus Reviews, starred).
