I simply loved reading this book. It wasn't hard to get into the story, as it is based on the life of Ernest Hemingway. That era of writers is fascinating as they all struggled to get published, while hanging out in Paris and living a life of partying, drinking and seemingly a glamorous life. Hemingway was a womanizer which made it so difficult for his "Paris" wife.

Do you mean to say to whom would you recommend this book.? One of the reasons for only 4 stars was the poor grammar at times. However, I felt his could be excused since the narrative was written as if by Hadley.
The reader is drawn Into the lives and lifestyle of the two central characters who quickly become acquaintances I felt most connected to Hadley and despite the fact that her life was happy again, I still felt her great sense if a real love which was kost

The story of Hadley and her life with Ernest Hemingway was obviously well researched and beautifully executed. I felt as if I got to know her personally. Well done.

Liked the book, enjoyed going back in time. These people were real - living their lives of pure unadulterated freedom, nothing holding them back, making their own rules and bending to no one.

Women afraid of leaving their husbands after knowing of an affair and feeling fear of the unknown should read this book.

As much as I liked this book, Hadley and Hems relationship grated on my tolerance and I found myself forced to try very hard to understand their contract.

I just simply love anything Hemingway and for that reason alone this is worth the read. It is a well written but not brilliant novel about Hadley Richardson's marriage to Hemingway in the 1920s. It is a tragic account of tormented love and the abuse Richardson survived living with the complex and self-destructive Hemingway. The reader is drawn into the interior life of the often rejected Hadley while her talented husband finds love and lust in the arms of many other women including the one he finally leaves Hadley for: the seductress Pauline Pfeiffer. I had a hard time understanding Hemingway as lovable so therefore could not relate to Hadley's despair at losing him. The novel is generally well written but does an injustice, in my estimation, to its main character Hadley. It makes her out to be a little thick and frumpy and absolutely lost without her man. I'm quite sure there was more substance to her that the author cares to divulge.

There are so many Hemingway books, this is by his first wife and their time in Paris. A fascinating look at the life of the literary expatriates in Paris after WW1. Well written, a good read.

With wonderful imagination, McClain manages to capture an inspirational time for literature by intersecting the astonishing lust for the best of life in limbo between two horribly tragic historical events with the equally astonishing stories (Fiction or otherwise) of writers who were writing words we can only feast on with imagination. Two Thumbs Way Up!
