The book starts out in Chicago, 1920. Hadley Richardson is a shy twenty-eight-year-old who has all but given up on love and happiness when she meets Ernest Hemingway. After a whirlwind courtship and wedding, the pair set sail for France. But glamorous Jazz Age Paris, full of artists and writers, fuelled by alcohol and gossip, is no place for family life and fidelity. Ernest and Hadley’s marriage begins to founder, and the birth of a beloved son serves only to drive them further apart. Hemingway then begins to gain recognition for his writing and pressurise his already fragile marriage. From Chicago to Paris, Spain, Austria and the Cote d’Azure..
