Hemingway's Daughter

Tell Me When It Hurts

The Rage of Plum Blossoms

"Loved this book! Couldn’t put it down & read it in 2 days. I wasn’t sure how the author was going to be able to make the concept of Hemingway having a daughter feel authentic but the relationship Ms Whitehead crafted between Papa Hemingway & Finley came across as so believable & true that I was swept up in the possibility that she might’ve actually existed! Excellent character development! I’ve read a lot of material on Hemingway’s complicated life & loves and was impressed with the historical accuracy, not only regarding Hemingway but also of the various time periods, such as the fact that women weren’t seen as capable or smart enough to have a legal career. There were times throughout the book where I cheered Finn on or felt her pain. I won’t add any “spoilers” but will encourage readers to dig into this very impressive and thoroughly enjoyable novel. If you have an affinity for anything Hemingway, add this to your list!"
If Hemingway had a daughter she would have been Finn!

"Grief, Intrigue, mystery and plenty of scenic description to make you feel like you’re right there with the characters. Couldn’t put this one down from start to finish. Love it."
Lovely story to get stuck into
