What’s up for grabs: a personalized, signed copy of THE CHAPERONE to one lucky winner (US/Canada only!)


WHY? Besides my review in the post directly below this, here’s a few good reasons:

"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."—Sena 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

“A fun romp” –Good Housekeeping

Sponsored by Riverhead Books, the contest is open until 5/29.
