About the Book
Joey's mother, a young, single Catholic girl, struggles to raise her little boy during the Great Depression. Poverty and illness take their toll, and in desperation, she places him in foster care, vowing to one day make them a family again. Her faith leads her to a loving couple who raise Joey like their own son.

A shy and anxious child, Joey is confused by his love for his two mothers, his respect for his foster father, and his desire to know a real father.

When tragedy strikes, Joey is terrified. What will happen to him? Will anyone love him? Will he ever have a real family to call his own?

This true story of love, faith and tragedy will amaze and touch readers with its unlikely turn of events and the depth of four adults' love and devotion for one small boy.

Put a Tent Over the Circus puts a tent over the three rings of Joey's life -- church, school, and family.
