The bestselling author of The Paris Wife returns
to the subject of Ernest Hemingway in a novel about his
passionate, stormy marriage to Martha Gellhorn—a fiercely
independent, ambitious young woman who would become one of
the greatest war correspondents of the twentieth century
In 1937, twenty-eight-year-old Martha travels alone to
Madrid to report on the atrocities of the Spanish Civil War,
and becomes drawn to the stories of ordinary people caught
in devastating conflict. She also finds herself
unexpectedly—and uncontrollably—falling in love with
Hemingway, a man already on his way to becoming a legend. In
the shadow of the impending Second World War, and set
against the tumultuous backdrops of Madrid, Finland, China,
Key West, and especially Cuba, where Martha and Ernest make
their home, their relationship and professional careers
ignite. But when Ernest publishes the biggest literary
success of his career, For Whom the Bell Tolls, they
are no longer equals, and Martha must make a choice:
surrender to the confining demands of being a famous man's
wife, or risk losing Ernest by forging a path as her own
woman and writer. It is a dilemma that will force her to
break his heart, and her own.
