Six Bits

With only a mysterious telegram, improbable email, and antique newspaper as his guides, Jack London Clarke is thrust into an epic, unsuspecting journey of redemption and self-discovery.

Three days before Christmas, Jack issues a stunning ultimatum to his wife following a damaging confrontation over his suspected infidelity. As he prepares to flee his suburban Chicago home, a knock upon the front door delivers a most unlikely character, one who sets Jack’s personal life spinning out of control.

Consumed by entitlement, excess and temptation, Jack has grown ignorant to his own moral decay and hardened heart, which have alienated the three women who love him most. When his family turns up missing, he must face the reality of his ways and the realization that the life he once had—but never knew—may be lost forever.

While searching through a world not known to modern man, he stumbles upon welcoming strangers who reintroduce him to those things most important in life. Only when he confronts the skeletons of his past and empties his soul of the scars of a debauched childhood can he dream of ever seeing his family again.

“This book wore me out—in a thrilling and unsuspecting way! Just when you think you have the plot figured out, author Michael Ringering sends you careening down a different path. The story is an incredible look at how some forget those things most important in life.”

– Jed Mescon, News Anchor, WRCB-TV, Chattanooga, TN

“I found myself reflecting on my own life choices as I followed the author’s protagonist through this Dickensesque tale. The characters’ interactions truly have the reader examining those things most important in life, while being thoroughly entertained.”

– Bridget Garland, Editor, East Tennessee Medical News

Six Bits is a simultaneous thrilling page-turner and heart-warming tale that weaves the threads of redemption, love and forgiveness throughout its pages. Long after the last word was read, I continued to relive the journey of redemption.”

– Dr. Christie Kleinmann, Asst. Professor, Communications, Lee University

“This story begins along the genre of a James Patterson novel before seamlessly transforming to an era more befitting that of Charles Dickens. The author embeds you in the transformational journey of Jack London Clarke—a man who rediscovers a life he always had, but never knew.”

– Mae Kasten, Career Educator, Wood River, IL

“From the brevity of the book’s title, you cannot begin to imagine the complex journey author Michael Ringering has planned for you. The character building is superb, the plot complex and mesmerizing, and the message universal.”

– Dr. Shauna Lorenzo-Rivero, Surgeon, Chattanooga, TN
