The Lost Ruby
Author: Christoph von Schmid
Written in: 1841
Pages: 120

The Lost Ruby is part of the Fireside Collection and the von Schmid Collection

This is the story of young Lieutenant Wildberg and the heavy price he paid for succumbing to the subtle temptation of worldly logic. Though at first his “indiscretion” seemed to accomplish a great and noble good, it eventually brought grief and harm to those he loved. He learned that “even the most trivial lie is an evil seed.” (The second story in this volume is as powerful as The Lost Ruby.)

    An 11 Year Old Boy’s Review This was a very touching story. It reminded me of The Basket of Flowers b/c it had the same themes of honesty, perseverance, and forgiveness. This wasn’t an adventurous story but it was really good and I liked it.
