SRP 2012 REVIEW: I enjoyed reading about Cora Carlisle's journey to New York City to serve as a chaperone for 15 year old Louise Brooks. She has a hidden agenda, seeking out answers to her past. She also finds that many of her ideas about life and morality begin to change along with life in the 1920's.
