The Paris Wife follows Hadley Richardson Hemingway, Earnest Hemingway's first wife. Through this novel we see their friendship and unlikely courtship, follow them through Paris, Switzerland and Spain, and feel the pain they go through when they finally decide enough is enough. You get to meet Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, and other authors from the time period. The ending was both poignant and tragic at the same time and it was utterly beautiful. This is one of my favorite books, ever.
