Reuben Watson Stone stood shivering in the cold December wind. Even though he lived in the city, work was hard to find. His widowed mother and sister Beth depended on him to be the man in charge of the house. He'd do anything to support his family, but would he do what was right?
Read this story to understand the struggles this young lad faces to provide his family with just the necessities of life.
What should a boy do when on a wild ride with a drunken man and a reckless horse? Reuben prayed.
Reuben was quick and eager to learn. Even though his skill put him ahead of other boys, he was humble.
When Reuben was misunderstood and falsely accused, he trusted God.
You will be challenged again and again by the solid character of this lad, who took his charge seriously. He was not ashamed to show the colors of his captain! A worthwhile book for young and old.
