Spanning the six decades when Las Vegas grew from a dusty gambling town into the melting pot metropolis it is today, ’ROUND MIDNIGHT is the story of four women --- one who falls in love, one who gets lucky, one whose heart is broken, and one who chooses happiness --- whose lives change at the Midnight Room, a classic casino nightclub.

by Laura McBride - Fiction

In the predawn hours, a woman’s marriage crumbles with a single confession. Across town, an immigrant family struggles to fit in and get by in the land of opportunity. Three thousand miles away, a soldier wakes up in Walter Reed hospital with the vague feeling that he’s done something awful. In a single moment, these disparate lives intersect. Faced with seemingly insurmountable loss, each person must decide whether to give in to despair, or to find the courage and resilience to rise.
