Associate Publisher Ursula Doyle, shares her feelings on the book.
From the moment I read the first few pages of The Paris Wife in manuscript, I was a goner – I completely fell in love with Hadley's voice as she told the story of her all-consuming love affair with the young, charismatic and passionate Hemingway, who was so much more vulnerable and troubled than anyone except Hadley knew. Their marriage, their life amid the glamour and the squalor of 1920s Paris and the unspeakable sadness of the betrayal that led to their parting are vividly and sympathetically imagined by Paula McLain, who makes you feel as though you are there alongside them, reliving those exhilarating times when anything seemed possible.
