SYNOPSIS:

"With her shiny black bob and milky skin, Louise Brooks epitomized silent-film glamour. But in Laura Moriarty's engaging new novel THE CHAPERONE, Brooks is just a hyper-precocious and bratty 15-year-old, and our protagonist, 36-year-old Cora Carlisle, has the not-easy mission of keeping the teenager virtuous while on a trip from their native Kansas to New York City. After a battle of wills, there's a sudden change of destiny for both women, with surprising and poignant results." — Entertainment Weekly

Author Time @ Hoover Library: Margaret Dilloway

Margaret Dilloway's second novel, The Care and Handling of Roses with Thorns is a triumph that should crystallize fans from her debut novel, How to be an American Housewife. Both a family drama and a tale of forgiveness, The Care and Handling of Roses with Thorns is, at it's heart, the story of Galilee Garner, a biology teacher with advanced kidney disease who raises champion roses and lives her solitary life, until one day her niece shows up ready to break apart Gal's closed heart.
