Readers have been clamoring for a new Van Reid novel with the easy, innocent charm and page-turning exploits of Cordelia Underwood, Mollie Peer, and Daniel Plainway. Their wait is over. Set a century earlier, just after the American Revolution, Peter Loon brings us more of the irresistibly etched characters, intriguing adventures, and wonderful storytelling that we've come to expect.

In 1802, his newly widowed mother dispatches seventeen-year-old Peter Loon from Sheepscott Great Pond, deep in the forested District of Maine, on a singular quest. He is to find Obed Winslow -- a long-lost "uncle" whom he will ultimately discover to be more than that to his mother. Along the way the appealing young man finds a guide in one Zachariah Leach, a large-hearted, free-spirited traveling parson with a seafaring past. Together they encounter a rich panoply of characters and find themselves caught in a raging territorial battle between wealthy landowners and rebel hardscrabble homesteaders. Superbly written and deliciously authentic, Peter Loon is a splendid tale of action, adventure, and humor.
