This is that rare, precious and fabulous thing - a proper story, with characters you care about desperately and root for right to the end . . . I can't recommend this novel highly enough. In no particular order, it is moving, shocking, dramatic, clever, atmospheric, glamorous and satisfying. You'll adore it * Daily Mail * Devour it * Marie Claire * An evocative look at the early life of silent-film icon Louise Brooks, who in 1922 leaves Wichita, Kansas, for New York City in the company of 36-year-old chaperone, Cora Carlisle. . . . Mesmerizing * Vogue * A lovely novel, full of humanity * Sunday Times * It's impossible not to be completely drawn in by The Chaperone. Laura Moriarty has delivered the richest and realest possible heroine in Cora Carlisle . . . What a beautiful book. I loved every page -- Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife A fun romp * Good Housekeeping * Enthralling . . . In this layered and inventive story, Moriarty raises profound questions about family, sexuality, history, and whether it is luck or will - or a combination of the two - that makes for a wonderful life * O, The Oprah Magazine *
