Ring Around the Moon (LARGE PRINT) : One steamy night in July 1940, at one of Jack Beale's monthly "rent parties," his wife Arleatha discovers yet another of her husband's many affairs. A proud man who feels trapped in his black skin, Jack wants a family but cannot help always looking for "the good life" for himself. Arleatha is fed up with his drinking, his gambling, and his indiscretions: within earshot of their nine-year-old daughter, Amy, she tells Jack that he's got just one more chance. In Ring Around the Moon, Amy chronicles the final year of her parents' disastrous marriage and the effect it has on her and her brothers. She tries to understand the anguish of her mother and the weakness of her father as he struggles to keep his promise. Then, before the year is up, a terrible incident threatens to break up the family once and for all . . .
