The Chaperone

by Laura Moriarty.

Not to be confused with Liane Moriarty. One of Book-Treks Great Reads.

“Moriarty successfully conflates non-fiction and fiction. A soon-to-be famous true-life actress, Louise Brooks, and her chaperone Cora face childhood demons on a trip from Kansas to New York in the 1920’s. Cora’s profound epiphany emanates from her meeting with the past and the realization that life should not be bound by superficial morality.”

Speaking of Downton Abbey, Mr. Carson & Mrs. Hughes, conjured in The Remains of the Day… Elizabeth McGovern will be starring in that movie soon as well as a movie based on this book, The Chaperone. Funny enough she plays Cora in both.
