What Readers Are Saying
This book is pure addiction. The story flows beautifully, the storyline is mesmerizing and the relationship of daughter to famous father is deep and most importantly, real.
I don't use the term loosely when I say this book is a literary masterpiece. I had to repeatedly remind myself that I was reading a work of fiction I was introduced to a compassionate, loving Papa who spent his adult life looking for true love not realizing that he had found it in his first marriage. Read This Book!
When this book was recommended, I was not sure if it was a book that I would actually end up reading. Not the type of book I normally would read. I was so wrong! What a fantastic read! I could not put it down! So well written!
This is the rare book that compelled me to marathons of indulgence as I relished the intimacy of Film's life as a Hemingway, a brilliant and powerful woman who was able to soar inspire of the familial pain.Thank you to Ms. Whitehead for this gift.
Hemingway's Daughter is a beautiful book, merging a memoir and a coming-of-age story. While the central character never existed in reality, you couldn't have guessed it from the book. This is a gem of a book, a heartwarming read to anyone who wished to read realistic fiction.
REMARKABLE FICTION SO REAL ONE MAY START TO BELIEVE HEMINGWAY REALLY HAD A DAUGHTER
Through Finley's narration, we have a peep into Hemingway's failings and significant victories. The plot is intriguing and captivating. I found myself glued to this book right till the very last page.
Hemingway's Daughter is well-written fiction that could easily have passed as non-fiction had I not known Hemingway did not have a daughter. I read this book in one day because the pages kept turning themselves. It made me cry. It made me laugh. It made me cheer. I recommend this book to anyone who appreciates a story written like a piece of art instead of just words on a page
Christine Whitehead does an excellent job of winding the realities of writer Hemingway's fiery personality with the fictional presence of a daughter who must make her own way in life under the umbrella of her father's fame. Thought-provoking and steeped in Hemingway's personality and a fictional daughter's challenges, Hemingway's Daughter is especially recommended for fans of the literary figure who are interested in exploring the glue of what held Hemingway's family together, and the possibilities of a different approach had a daughter been involved.
This is an amazing, beautifully written book. Although it is a work of historical fiction, the events and timelines are indicated as accurate. Due to the author's dedicated research efforts and talent as a storyteller, it's nearly impossible to tease out the actual from the fantasy. The intricate role Finn plays in her father's life will leave fans wishing she was real, that she could have really had a place in this fascinating man's orbit
