book club read: the paris wife

Last month my book club read The Paris Wife, by Paula McLain. This was my second read of the book and I had no trouble devouring its beautifully strung together words once again. The Paris Wife recounts the first marriage of Ernest Hemingway as told by his wife, Hadley, and weaves fairytale-like settings with love and heartache and Jazz age Paris with glitz and betrayal. It’s a book that makes you feel. By the end you’ll be reaching for tissues and the work of Hemingway himself (my own copy of A Moveable Feast just arrived in the mail!). Read it and if you’re like me, it will leave you wanting to buy a ticket to Paris to retrace their steps, or wishing you could find yourself in the streets of 1920’s Chicago…

“It was our favorite part of the day, this in-between time, and it always seemed to last longer than it should—a magic and lavender space unpinned from the hours around it, between worlds.”
