Mary Morris spins a wonderful story of Chicago in the 1920s, a musical period even enjoyed across the Atlantic in Britain, as seen on Downton Abbey which featured a Chicago jazz character and his band. In Ms. Morris’ The Jazz Palace, we follow the hijinks of Benny Lehrman as he pursues his passion to play jazz. The tale evolves into one of mobsters, music, and following your dreams in a wonderfully woven story.
