The chaperone in the title of this historical novel is Cora Carlisle, a 36-year-old woman who doesn't yet know that Louise Brooks, her 15-year-old charge, is destined to become an international film star. For matron Cora, Louise is just a teenage brat who serves as her excuse to come to New York City from Wichita, both as an escape from her husband and an opportunity to search for a secret from her own past. What she discovers about her own future turns out, however, to be even more important. A novel that possesses the spirit and atmosphere of the Roaring Twenties. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
