In the Roaring '20s, Chicago's Dreamland Café is a door to the good life for sharecropper's daughter Honoree Dalcour, dancing her way to the top as she socializes with Louis Armstrong and filmmaker Oscar Micheaux. But in a city awash in bootleg whiskey, gambling, and gangsters, an ambitious woman might risk more than she can stand to lose. Eight decades later, film student Sawyer Hayes sits at Honoree's bedside, hoping her memories of Micheaux will help his college thesis. But the stories are not what he expects, and she wants Sawyer to bare his own past as well.

"All the glitz and glamour of Jazz Age Chicago, along with all the mob violence, is artfully described by Bryce in this richly told, historical fiction debut."—Booklist
