Mollie Peer, or the Underground Adventure of the Moosepath League - by Van Reid
During the autumn of 1896 in Portland, Maine, feisty society columnist Mollie Peer believes that a ragamuffin little boy - known only as Bird - is merely the subject of a story that will propel her to the level of a true reporter. Instead, the chain of events she sets in motion, and the heroic and magnanimous people she comes to know (Bird included) lead her to understand the breadth of her own compassion and valor as she and her cohorts follow the little boy into the dark world of the Nightrunners.
In her first encounter with these shadowy figures, she is rescued quite by accident by the wise Pickwickian Tobias Walton and his rustic gentleman's gentleman, Sundry Moss. They will meet again and be joined by the hapless, if lovable, members of the Moosepath League, renowned spiritualist Baroness Blinsky, Indian shaman John Neptune and his raccoon Eugene, the boisterous patrons of the Merrymeeting Tavern, and the peculiar Quibbling Society - along with villains, eccentrics, and tellers of tall tales. The unforgettable figure who risks the most for his beliefs along the way is lionhearted baseball player Wyckford Cormac O'Hearn, who will unknowingly challenge Mollie's conscience and her heart. - Reviews -
