My #1 Wishlist Wednesday Book 
is


The Paris Wife 

by

Paula McLain




The Paris Wife



I first heard about this book several months ago, and I am pleased to hear that it has been chosen as one of the Richard and Judy book club spring reads for 2012..


Synopsis
from Goodreads 


Though deeply in love, the Hemingways are ill prepared for the hard- drinking and fast-living life of Jazz Age Paris, which hardly values traditional notions of family and monogamy. Surrounded by beautiful women and competing egos, Ernest struggles to find the voice that will earn him a place in history, pouring all the richness and intensity of his life with Hadley and their circle of friends into the novel that will become The Sun Also Rises. Hadley, meanwhile, strives to hold on to her sense of self as the demands of life with Ernest grow costly and her roles as wife, friend, and muse become more challenging. Despite their extraordinary bond, they eventually find themselves facing the ultimate crisis of their marriage—a deception that will lead to the unravelling of everything they’ve fought so hard for. A heartbreaking portrayal of love and torn loyalty, The Paris Wife is all the more poignant because we know that, in the end, Hemingway wrote that he would rather have died than fallen in love with anyone but Hadley.


I am sure this will find its way onto either my kindle or my book shelf before too long....

Happy Reading !
