Happy Ned: The Reward of Honesty
Now here’s a story with a twist! When faced with false accusations and public humiliation, our hero shows us how to do what’s right, even when taking the easy way out could have cleared his name. As he travels the tempestuous seas of dishonesty, greed, and distrust, you will find yourself so engaged with the story that you will literally want to deliver this lad from his distressing quandary.
And if this wasn’t enough to capture your attention you will meet our heroine Florinda, as well, who is faced with a most difficult decision of pride, vanity and peer pressure.
It’s story that shows well the truth of Psalm 107: “They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters, these will see the works of the Lord and His wonders in the deep.”
Character themes in this story: self-control, peer pressure, pride.
Originally written in 1873, and with a cover facsimile of those original 19th century editions!

“I read this book in one sitting. For such a thin read, this book packs a punch, even though I am seventeen years old and way past the suggested reading age. Though the hero takes honesty almost to a fault, his dedication to truth is inspiring and convicting. Read this book; it will challenge you to strive for truth in your own life, even if it means going overboard.” — Olivia of Louisville, Kentucky
