    PDF/EPUB Laura Moriarty é é The Chaperone ePUB ß chaperone mobile, The Chaperone PDF/EPUBI really liked so much of this book including Elizabeth McGovern's excellent narration but it just went on so long I felt like it had several false endings places where I was finished but then it kept goingMaybe the probelm is just that I didn't expect an epic when I began The story covers almost 50 years of Cora's life in a great deal of detail And while I find the 20th century interesting background I was frustrated at Moriarty's need to touch on so many different issues Prohibition adoption gay rights reproductive rights suffrage Add to that Cora happens to witness or read about dozens of historical events I began to feel manipulated after a whileWhat a I loved was the relationship between Cora and Louise Brooks I am a sucker for an author using a notice one true event and creating fiction from thereI would have been much satisfied had she ended the book after their summer together

    PDF/EPUB Laura Moriarty é é The Chaperone ePUB ß chaperone mobile, The Chaperone PDF/EPUBWhen 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 makes for okay reading Luckily for me the book in no way took that turn Instead it focused on the life of Cora Carlisle a proper married lady from Wichita who accompanies Louise on her journey to New York but really goes to find truths freedom and a broader mind That’s not including all the things she didn’t count on findingOn first meeting Cora in the book one assumes she’s a well bred woman of society who is happily married enjoys ladies luncheons and teas and has a keen eye on the world around her With Louise

    PDF/EPUB Laura Moriarty é é The Chaperone ePUB ß chaperone mobile, The Chaperone PDF/EPUBFirst off I am a sucker for historical fiction I really really liked this book Cora Carlisle the chaperone is a great character I felt as though I knew Cora and was completely wrapped up in her life There was one twist in the story I didn't see coming The author also piued my interest in reading about Louise Brooks who was certainly a woman ahead of her time I would highly recommend this one I've already passed my copy to a coworker

    PDF/EPUB Laura Moriarty é é The Chaperone ePUB ß chaperone mobile, The Chaperone PDF/EPUBYuck Would not recommend this book at all I would put this book in the category of “I wasted my time reading it so you do not have to” LOL This book is loosely historical fiction but then has modern sensitivities and opinions inserted like a bait and switch or a wolf in sheep’s clothing or any other sort of metaphor or imagery along these lines you may care to use It purports to be about Louse Brooks the silent screen star of the 1920s and her trip to NYC from Kansas City and how her mother hires a local woman to be her chaperone The story is told from the point of view of this chaperone And it goes off on tange
