What a gut-wrenching, sickening story, yet a good read! Definitely NOT for those who easily trigger over affair stories or who are fresh in their pain. I'm five years out - and I was the WW - and I found the story extremely difficult.
It's the story of Ernest Hemmingway's first marriage told through the eyes of his wife, Hadley. Hemmingway was notorious for his affairs and womanizing - and this very innocent, unsuspecting woman became his first victim. Watching it all unfold is just so very difficult. I could feel the raw pain, embarassment, and every other crazy emotion that went with it.
Anyway - if you are strong enough, it IS a good story.
