by Patti Callahan Henry

Love and Ruin by Paula McLain is exactly what we are looking for when we are looking for fiery women in historical fiction. Her story of Marsha Gellhorn, Hemningway’s third wife, a fierce and brilliant journalist, is both illuminating and a wild ride. We look to historical fiction to find our way today and Marsha Gellhorn is a woman that has something to teach and show all of us as we navigate love and independence, passion and realism, love and desire.
