The Chaperone

The Chaperone  The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty

This is a marvelous fictional account of the life of the chaperone, Cora, who accompanied teen-aged Louise Brooks from Kansas to New York City for one summer in 1922.  Cora's story from the age of three to her death is one of flexibility amidst great and shocking change. Her strength and adaptability is the heart of this riveting story, a true gem that I greatly enjoyed.
