This evocative and moving novel by Paula McLain captures a period of time and a love affair between two unforgettable figures— Ernest Hemingway and his first wife, Hadley.

Following a whirlwind courtship and wedding in the 1920s, the Hemingways set sail for Europe but are ill-prepared for the hard-drinking and fast-living milieu of Jazz Age Paris, which hardly valued traditional notions of family and monogamy. As Hadley strives to hold on to her sense of self, Ernest struggles to find the voice that will earn him a place in history.
