Book Club-The Paris Wife

It was a remarkable period of time in Paris in the twenties.  Ambition and betrayal, an extraordinary love affair between two unforgettable people.   The novel, "The Paris Wife" focuses on the romance, marriage and divorce of Earnest Hemingway and Hadley Richardson.  
The couple met when Hemingway was twenty and Richardson was twenty-eight.  They married in 1921 and soon moved to Paris.  There they met Ezra Pound, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein and James Joyce.    I'll prepared for the hard-drinking and fast living life of Jazz Age Paris, their marriage fell apart as Hemingway began having an affair with Richardson's friend Pauline Pfeiffer.  Richardson was the first of his four wives.
Our book club didn't give this novel high ratings, but the discussion was ranked very high.  It was a perfect evening as we sat around the dinner table, each having plenty to say regarding this love story.
