Summer 1926: Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley vacation in the south of France, accompanied by his lover Fife—whom he would marry the following year. In her extensively researched novelization of Hemingway's married life, written with a brisk, evocative style worthy of its subject, Naomi Wood offers a feminine perspective on four passionate yet turbulent decades with four wives, as later Martha Gellhorn and Mary Welsh also walk down the aisle with the magnetic yet mercurial writer.
"An absorbing, tender glimpse inside the lives of those in Hemingway's inner circle."—Booklist
"In a quartet of searing interlocked portraits, Naomi Wood brings vividly to life the real women who loved and lost the legendary charmer and great writer. Mrs. Hemingway is a luminous, heartbreaking novel."—Ellen Feldman
