The Paris Wife: A Novel by Paula Mclain
Book Club Recommended
Interesting, Informative, Insightful
The Paris Wife

This book was very thought provoking and sad. Hemingway was a very arrogant man who did what he wanted, went where he wanted and loved the way he wanted. Hadley was the long suffering wife who did everything she could to make him happy but in the end it wasn't enough. Our book club enjoyed this book and we highly recommend it.

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

Book was good and it provided a lot of good discussion. However, most of us felt that it was very slow.

The Woman in Cabin 10.

This was an ok book. The main character was truly flawed and as far as mystery or suspense not truly believable. We had a great discussion. Some liked it, some did not.

The Shoemaker's Wife

Our book club felt that this book read like a Hallmark TV movie. It was difficult to believe that Ciro would show up on the day of Enza's wedding to Vito. It did make for a great discussion. But, we really did not care for it.
