This is one of those books I would have tossed aside because of the cover, which is extremely misleading. This is not a sappy love story, but instead an intricate (yet fictional) and historical portrayal of Martha Gellhorn, the third wife of Ernest Hemingway. Gellhorn was a fledging novelist and “green” reporter when she met Hemingway, who encouraged her to cover the Spanish Civil War. While in Spain, the two fall in love and move to Cuba, where Gellhorn set up the famous “cat house” before their eventual divorce over her desire – and need – to continue working as a war correspondent. This would make an excellent book club selection.
