1920 was the start of a new and exciting decade. The First World War had just ended, and life was changing for both men and women. Despite America’s prohibition era, life seemed more free than ever. Under the lights of this American stage, 29-year-old Hadley Richardson met a dynamic and intense 21-year-old Ernest Hemingway and they fell in love. The story of their romance and subsequent marriage is captured in The Paris Wife, a novel based on the true story of Hemingway’s first wife. As the pages turn, Hadley engages us in her life with Ernest until both the marriage and the story draw to a heartwrenching close.
