McClain has an easy style that quickly makes you believe she is Hadley Richardson Hemingway. The author's research makes the story ring true, that Hemingway was a pompous sort, and any woman he met would learn of pain soon enough. Loved the time period McClain painted as well. I was surprised I kept wanting to pick up this book and read, though there really wasn't much of a plot. It was enduring Hadley's life with Ernest along with her, and amazingly, that was good enough to make for a solid, pleasantly enjoyable book.

Mahala Church Agree with what Hope said in every aspect. I particularly enjoyed the peek into the lives of so many famous people. Hemingway could write tight and true, but his gifts didn't include supporting the people who loved and supported him.
