On a summer's day in 1922 Cora Carlisle boards a train from Wichita, Kansas, to New York City, leaving behind a marriage that's not as perfect as it seems and a past that she buried long ago. She is charged with the care of a stunning young girl with a jet-black fringe and eyes wild and wise beyond her fifteen years. This girl is hungry for stardom and Cora for something she doesn't yet know. Cora will be many things in her lifetime - an orphan, a mother, a wife, a mistress - but in New York she is a chaperone and her life is about to change. It is here under the bright lights of Broadway, in a time when prohibition reigns and speakeasies with their forbidden whispers behind closed doors thrive, that Cora finds what she has been searching for. It is here, in a time when illicit thrills and daring glamour sizzle beneath the laws of propriety that her life truly begins. It is here that Cora and her charge, Louise Brooks, take their first steps towards their dreams.

The New York Times bestseller and the USA Today #1 Hot Fiction Pick for the summer, The Chaperone is a captivating novel about the woman who chaperoned an irreverent Louise Brooks to New York City in 1922 and the summer that would change them both. Only a few years before becoming a famous silent-film star and an icon of her generation, a fifteen-year-old Louise Brooks leaves Wichita, Kansas, to study with the prestigious Denishawn School of Dancing in New York. Much to her annoyance, she is accompanied by a thirty-six-year-old chaperone, who is neither mother nor friend. Cora Carlisle, a complicated but traditional woman with her own reasons for making the trip, has no idea what she’s in for. Young Louise, already stunningly beautiful and sporting her famous black bob with blunt bangs, is known for her arrogance and her lack of respect for convention. Ultimately, the five weeks they spend together will transform their lives forever. For Cora, the city holds the promise of discovery that might answer the question at the core of her being, and even as she does her best to watch over Louise in this strange and bustling place she embarks on a mission of her own. And while what she finds isn’t what she anticipated, she is liberated in a way she could not have imagined. Over the course of Cora’s relationship with Louise, her eyes are opened to the promise of the twentieth century and a new understanding of the possibilities for being fully alive. Drawing on the rich history of the 1920s,’30s, and beyond—from the orphan trains to Prohibition, flappers, and the onset of the Great Depression to the burgeoning movement for equal rights and new opportunities for women—Laura Moriarty’s The Chaperone illustrates how rapidly everything, from fashion and hemlines to values and attitudes, was changing at this time and what a vast difference it all made for Louise Brooks, Cora Carlisle, and others like them.

From award winner Julia Gregson, author of Jasmine Nights, this sweeping international bestseller brilliantly captures the lives of three young women on their way to a new life in India during the 1920s. As the Kaisar-I-Hind weighs anchor for Bombay in the autumn of 1928, its passengers ponder their fate in a distant land. They are part of the “Fishing Fleet”—the name given to the legions of English women who sail to India each year in search of husbands, heedless of the life that awaits them. The inexperienced chaperone Viva Holloway has been entrusted to watch over three unsettling charges. There’s Rose, as beautiful as she is naïve, who plans to marry a cavalry officer she has met a mere handful of times. Her bridesmaid, Victoria, is hell-bent on losing her virginity en route before finding a husband of her own. And shadowing them all is the malevolent presence of a disturbed schoolboy named Guy Glover. From the parties of the wealthy Bombay socialites to the poverty of Tamarind Street, from the sooty streets of London to the genteel conversation of the Bombay Yacht Club, East of the Sun takes us back to a world we hardly understand but yearn to know. This is a book that has it all: glorious detail, fascinating characters, and masterful storytelling.

Nicole "Cole" Gerringer is a reluctant chaperone, off on a fourteen day backcountry wilderness camping trip with her niece and sixty-five other eighth grade girls, led by the sole man in the group, Jason Walker. Everything goes well until they discover they are trapped in the wilderness by an event that will alter their destinies and require them to survive by their wits. Separated from the group temporarily, Cole rescues federal agent Alex Rios from certain death. Together, the large group finds they must fend for themselves in an attempt to escape savage dangers and a wildfire that threatens to kill them all in one fell swoop. In the midst of their strife, Cole finds herself torn between the growing affections of both Jason and Alex, as she struggles to hold the large group together and keep them all safe. Meanwhile, an even more sinister threat awaits them should they survive their trek toward civilization. This threat cannot be overcome, only endured, as they have been unknowingly doing throughout the many perils of their camping trip. Beyond them, the whole world is changing, as will they. Nothing is as it was before. Cole must face this chaos head on as she leads her original group and hundreds of refugees who come to join them on a journey into an unknown future, with the fate of this region's remnant of humankind resting in her hands. This is the first in a three-part series focusing on the struggles of survivors in America coping with the catastrophic loss of their way of life, taking some of them on a journey as far as the White House and a battle against tyranny to save our country's hard-won freedoms.

The chaperone–usher (CU) pathway constitutes one of the most prevalent mechanisms for the assembly of adhesive pili on the surface of Gram-negative bacteria. Studies at the interface of genetics, biochemistry, and structural biology have detailed the functions of the chaperone and the usher, providing a step-by-step understanding of pilus biogenesis by this sophisticated molecular machine. Further work has elucidated the molecular basis of specificity in host recognition by CU pili. Snapshots in CU pilus assembly and CU pilus-mediated pathogenesis have unveiled necessary molecular details for the design and application of promising antibiotic compounds that may soon prevent and treat acute, chronic, and recurrent bacterial infections in humans.
