Book: The Paris Wife
Author: Paula McLain
Rating: 4 out of 5

Yet another page turning historical fiction novel. The Paris Wife is the story of Ernest Hemingway and his first wife Hadley Richardson. Though based on true characters and somewhat real events, the story is fictional. It follows them falling in love and moving to Paris while Hemingway struggles to start his writing career. The story itself is very romantic and written beautifully so the reader can actually feel what it was like to be young in Paris during the 20's. Lots of drinking, traveling, mischief and the discovery of oneself after the first world war. The hardest part of the novel is getting used to the 20's slang. Overall, it is a heartbreaking tale that keeps you interested until the last word.
