Based on the positive reaction I received from readers, I realized there was a larger story to be told. With just a few changes to “it began with Serenity”, I found I could reposition this first Chesapeake Station as Episode One, the first of a three-part series. To help distinguish it from Serenity I gave it a new name, Chesapeake Station: Evil Never Sleeps. The story remains essentially the same, only now the reader is prepared for what lurks in Episode Two!

Praise for Ticket to Ride
I just finished reading this beautifully written and truly gripping, personal memoir. I must tell you, it was difficult to put down. There are scenes where my heart nearly stopped. It’s a true story of a young boy who grows up poor and under the abusive hand of a hateful stepfather.
It’s a story of a young man who quits high school to find work. He supports his mother and younger (hemophiliac) brother, then leaves to find his future and pursue his dreams.
It was hard to imagine how in the world this young man ever managed to keep his wits, his sense of humor, and his focus on the future. You realize early on, nobody was going to stop him… nobody!
I found myself wanting to crawl inside this book, hug that little boy, and then find that stepfather and wrap my fingers around his neck!
There are moments where you will laugh out loud, and moments where you will close your eyes and cry. There was no quit in this young him.
I loved this book!
The theme of Don Hussey’s story is the hard-won wisdom that comes from never giving up and never giving in, no matter where we start in life and what we must overcome. That determination, along with his brutal honesty, brave integrity, and unbounded compassion make his memoir a handbook for survival and an inspiration for pursuing our dreams.
Ticket to Ride is a heart-warming story of remarkable human resilience.
I am proud to call him a friend. This book is a great story of one man’s odyssey in America. Definitely a must read!
A non-stop story of courage and ambition in the face of relentless adversity. Ticket to Ride will make a great inspirational movie. Best of luck!
An inspiring and gripping story of a young boys’ journey into manhood. His courage and determination enabled him to escape the poverty and abuse of his early years and achieve the American Dream. A rich tale of triumph over disaster. It touched my soul.
As America prepares the future and enhances our schools and colleges to face the educational needs of an expanding world, America will continue to make a difference in hope and opportunity. I endorse that dream, and I’m delighted to endorse this remarkable man and his Ticket to Ride.
This story needs to be in every high school and college across America. A masterpiece tale of youthful self-reliance and determination to succeed! The impact of this book will be profound!
