    A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. He is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock. Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie - magical, comforting, wise beyond her years - promised to protect him, no matter what.

    Chicago, 1920: Hadley Richardson is a quiet 28eight-year-old who has all but given up on love and happiness—until she meets Ernest Hemingway and her life changes forever. Following a whirlwind courtship and wedding, the pair set sail for Paris, where they become the golden couple in a lively and volatile group—the fabled “Lost Generation”—that includes Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.

    Pris says: "Delighted in Del Mar"
    "Bittersweet, touching, beautifully written & read"
    Overall

    Charming story about Ernest Hemingway's first wife and their life in and around Paris prior to World War II.Great insights into Hemingway's character with a surpsrising ending (for me anyway).
    The kind of book that stays with you long after.
    Makes reading Hemingway now like looking in on an old friend.

    Born a slave on the island of Saint-Domingue, Zarit - known as Tt - is the daughter of an African mother she never knew and one of the white sailors who brought her into bondage. Though her childhood is one of brutality and fear, Tt finds solace in the traditional rhythms of African drums and in the voodoo loas she discovers through her fellow slaves.

    Madelaine says: "good story, ok narration"
    "Another Epic Novel"
    Overall

    Another classic Isabel Allende historical ficton. She seemlessly blends multiple themes together to make a thoroughly comprehensive story. This main plot of the book is the story of a slave from Santa Domingo to her freedom in New Orleans. Although not without horror or sorrow, it is a story filled with real hope.
