Win a Copy of "Love and Ruin" by Paula McLain
About "Love and Ruin"
From a bombed out Madrid during the Spanish Civil War to Omaha Beach on D-Day, Martha Gellhorn and Ernest Hemmingway fell in and out of love. In the years between, they buy a house in Cuba and write their novels and cover multiple wars across the globe. Gellhorn tries to balance her own career outside of Hemmingway’s shadow with being his wife.
While perfect for fans of McLain’s "The Paris Wife," "Love and Ruin" fully stands on its own. An absorbing and well-placed novel that bounces between the horrors of war and idles of Cuba, from terrible ocean journeys to drinks with Gary Cooper in Sun Valley, this is bound to create legions of new fans for a woman who became one of the 20th century’s most significant war correspondents.
