The Lottery Ticket

Jules Verne’s “The Lottery Ticket” is a story about a message in a bottle with a twist. Hulda Hansen’s husband-to-be Ole embarks on a journey with a fishing boat with the hope to get rich and provide for his future family. However Ole never returns. The only thing left of him is a bottle with a note to Hulda and … a lottery ticket. Is it a winning one? What will Hulda win and is it going to be worth it if Ole is really dead? Verne masterfully weaves conflict, intrigue, and a strange chain of events around something as small as a piece of paper.
