This biography puts flesh on the figure of Hadley Richardson Hemingway sketched in Ernest Hemingway's "A Movable Feast." We meet a woman born in the Victorian era who rescues herself once through her love for Hemingway and rescues herself again by bringing their marriage to an end. The story does a good job of describing what each brought to their union and how both contributed to its failure, even as they maintained their love for each other.
