A New York Times Bestselling Author -- Only a few years before becoming a famous actress and an icon for her generation, a fifteen- year- old Louise Brooks leaves Wichita to make it big in New York.

Thirty- six- year- old Cora Carlisle is a complicated but traditional woman with her own reasons for making the trip. The five weeks they spend together will change their lives forever.
