The Paris Wife Review

First review is a personal favorite.

The Paris Wife: A Novel

Life is complicated with moments of happiness and moments of sadness.

Knowing Ernest Hemingway's history, I knew Hadley was his first wife - first of many. My heart would not allow my head to finish the story...to see it through because I have a personal connection.

I cried myself through the last 5 chapters, re-reading emotions. The underlying message that Hadley told herself...the same message I tell myself. "What is done, is done. No one knows what tomorrow will bring but you must be present."

Maybe it's the pain and ultimately the divorce of one of my favorite writers that has me obsessed with this book. All I know is there is a deep resonance. I find myself thinking about Ernest and Hadley from time to time. When was the last time a book did this to you?

From the book; Hadley to Ernest

"We'll always be friends - delicate friends, and I'll love you 'til I die, you know."
