Hemingway's Girl is a historical fiction novel that is a must for anyone who love Hemingway or love stories.

The book is sent in Key West during the 1930s when Hemingway spends his time writing, drinking, and boxing. He meets Mariella, a young woman who is trying to support and hold her family together after her father's death.

What I love about Mariella is that she is strong. When love enters her life, she doesn't swoon and give her life over to a man. She embodies feminine strength. She is creative. She has dreams for herself other than just finding a good husband. She lives through tragedy and comes through, not unscathed, but with her strength and dignity intact. She never sacrifices who she is for what she wants, even when she has to choose between loving the married Hemingway and loving an honorable but damaged WWI vet.

This is one of those novels that will truly submerse you in the place and time of the story. This is a must read!
