ADRIFT IN NEW YORK BY by HORATIO ALGER, JR. – A free audiobook
Narrated by Bridget Gaige
John Linden is one of the wealthiest men in his town. Now in the twilight of his life, his properties and wealth will be inherited by his nephew and niece, Curtis Waring and Florence Linden respectively. However, John Linden believes that it is best for the family if Curtis and Florence where to marry. In fact, he makes it a requirement for Florence Linden to marry Curtis if she wishes to have any of his inheritance. Florence does not approve of this request but her family wishes to push her into agreeing in order for them to get half of the inheritance.
Unfortunately, greed is a human element that is prevalent especially in those who already have a lot in their life. Curtis’ relatives wants to have all the inheritance for themselves and so they sent a young boy named Dodger to steal one of John Linden’s wills that state that Curtis and Florence will both take half of John Linden’s inheritance. However, Dodger gets caught by Florence and after some tense moments they eventually become friends. Florence surprises everyone when she decided to leave with Dodger rather than marrying Curtis. Is this a smart move for Florence? Will they be able to survive adrift in New York with barely any money between the both of them? John Linden’s will actually have a third inheritor, his son who disappeared a long time ago and presumed dead.
