A week ago, Fire and Ice had the pleasure in reviewing and being a part of the blog tour for Laura Moriarty’s soon to be released book, The Chaperone.

The Chaperone will be released on June 5th, 2012. 

Here is what everyone is saying about The Chaperone

It’s impossible not to be completely drawn in by The Chaperone. Laura Moriarty has delivered the richest and realest possible heroine in Cora Carlisle, a Wichita housewife who has her mind and heart blown wide open, and steps – with uncommon courage – into the fullness of her life. What a beautiful book. I loved every page.~ Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife 

What a charming, mesmerizing, transporting novel! The characters are so fully realized that I felt I was right there alongside them. A beautiful clarity marks both the style and structure of The Chaperone.~ Serena Jeter Naslund, author of Ahab’s Wife and Adam & Eve

The Chaperone is the best kind of historical fiction, transporting you to another time and place, but even more importantly delivering a poignant story about people so real, you’ll miss and remember them long after you close the book.” ~ Jenna Blum, author of Those Who Save Us and The Stormchasers 

The Chaperone is the enthralling story of two women… in this layered and inventive story, Moriarty raises profound questions about family, sexuality, history, and whether it is luck or will – or a combination of the two – that makes for a wonderful life.
~ O, the Oprah Magazine

    I was originally attracted to this book by the connection with Louise Brooks, a fascinating and tragic silent screen star. But, as the title suggests, the main character is “the chaperone,” Cora. I was totally charmed by Cora, and I have to say she has joined the list of my favorite fictional characters.

    Cora seems to have a perfect, but perfectly ordinary, life as the book opens. She lives in Wichita. She’s in her mid-30’s, married to a handsome, kind and successful lawyer, with two sons. She’s no shrinking violet: She was an early “lady driver” and a suffragette, but she is also very traditional, with her high collars and constricting corsets and a strong sense of duty. So it’s a bit of a surprise when she offers to chaperone a virtual stranger, the wild and rebellious fifteen-year-old Louise Brooks, to her dance classes in New York.
