    When one reads the name of Louise Brooks on the jacket of a book, one assumes that the book will be filled with tales of the glamorous silent movie star who went to seed too fast but remained proud and arrogant till her death The fact that the name of the book is The Chaperone hinted to me that the story might involve Louise Brooks influencing her dowdy chaperone and introducing her to the big bad beautiful world of New York City That make

    4 I would describe this story as a woman s journey of self discovery as she is entering a mid life crisis at the dawn of the twentieth century A voyage to discover truths about her beginnings which will change the set course of her life as she knows and expects It will lead to one focused on greater personal fulfillment and meaning rather than other s expectations or strictures Cora is wearing a tight corset during this quest which is mentioned often It s uncomfor

    I can t recommend this book to any of my friends SPOILER ALERT There is a bit of a spoiler in the next paragraph.There are a couple of themes going on in this book The first is knowing oneself How do we know who we are Cora, abandoned as a child, felt compelled to find her birth mother because she thought it would help her to feel complete Louise, raised by two parents, seemed to have the background that Cora envied The author did a good job exploring the lives and bac
