Good Reads - The Paris Wife: A Novel

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. The Good-- We're spring breaking and enjoying some good ol' family togetherness. We made a trip to Disneyland and have been visiting various parks around town every day this week. The Bad-- Technology is not our friend (again). An Internet Explorer malfunction has me blogging from our IPad (which is a slow process for my un-savvy IPad/IPhone self). With all the PC problems we've been experiencing as of late, we may need to become Apple converts. The Mister's working on it, so hopefully we'll be up and running soon!

The Paris Wife: A Novel

Without the Internet to distract, I had a chance to catch up on my reading. I'm pretty much mesmerized with this book-- The Paris Wife: A Novel. It's the fictional account of Hadley Richardson, Ernest Hemingway's first wife, and her experiences as part of the "Lost Generation" in Paris of the 1920's. A vivid and emotional read with an interesting, celebrated and self-centered cast of characters. Highly recommend!
