There was a lot I liked about this book, but it had some challenges for me that knocked it down to three stars. First, I had a hard time aligning the lifestyle Cora was living at the end of the book with the prim, rigid woman she was at the beginning. Is it possible that a sure-of-herself 15-year-old Louise Brooks could have had that profound an effect on a 36-year-old woman? I doubted it.

The author took on a LOT of issues in the book, which ultimately became distracting. Instead, I wish Louise Brooks had been more central to the story, rather than a peripheral player, because the relationship between Cora and Louise -- two very different women -- was what interested me most.
