Booklist Description (PUT BLURBS FOR BOOKLISTS HERE): 

During the summer of 1922, 36 year-old Cora Carlisle spends five weeks in New York City as the chaperone for an arrogant and uncooperative 15 year-old dance student, the future silent film star Louise Brooks.  Cora takes on this onerous responsibility because she hopes to track down the birth mother who placed her in a New York City orphanage when she was a young girl.
