About the Book

Suffering from a terminal illness, Miss Honey Gillette is a world famous/blues singer who believes God has sent her home to die. Or, has God sent Miss Honey home to Plattstown to meet Ruby Martinson, a ten-year-old miracle child? Eventually, Ruby Martinson becomes Miss Ruby Midnight, a jazz singer who in the 1940s sends the jazz world into a tailspin with her vocal gifts. But more importantly, Ruby has come to Chicago to establish herself, and where she is to meet Jimmy “Darkboy” Slade,” a jazz drummer of excellence. They fall in love, Miss Ruby Midnight and Jimmy “Darkboy” Slade. But how, then, can love and jazz coexist in a profession where fame demands so damn much for those who want it?
