Hemingway's Girl
Hemingway's Girl | Erika Robuck
8 posts | 7 read | 6 to read
She remembered when Hemingway had planted a banyan tree at his house and told her its parasitic roots were like human desire. At the time shed thought it romantic. She hadnt understood his warning. In Depression-era Key West, Mariella Bennet, the daughter of an American fisherman and a Cuban woman, knows hunger. Her struggle to support her family following her fathers death leads her to a bar and bordello, where she bets on a risky boxing match...and attracts the interest of two men: world-famous writer, Ernest Hemingway, and Gavin Murray, one of the WWI veterans who are laboring to build the Overseas Highway. When Mariella is hired as a maid by Hemingways second wife, Pauline, she enters a rarified world of lavish, celebrity-filled dinner parties and elaborate off-island excursions. As she becomes caught up in the tensions and excesses of the Hemingway household, the attentions of the larger-than-life writer become a dangerous temptation...even as straightforward Gavin Murray draws her back to what matters most. Will she cross an invisible line with the volatile Hemingway, or find a way to claim her own dreams? As a massive hurricane bears down on Key West, Mariella faces some harsh truths...and the possibility of losing everything she loves.

My feminist self is appalled 😂 Damn you, Buzzfeed!

You got: Ernest Hemingway
You need a manly man. A man who doesn't mince his words. A man who knows that love that is true and real creates a respite from death. You'll need to keep an eye out for him because he's pretty popular with the ladies, but you understand that his wandering eye just comes from a fear of rejection.

JanePratt "You and Langston are both sophisticated, politically conscious, sensitive souls, who draw strength from being on the forefront of progressive movements, but who also appreciate life's simple pleasures: eating, sleeping, drinking, and being in love." 11mo

Mehso-so

I didn‘t love it, didn‘t hate it. I felt appropriate. He wasn‘t someone I would want to know. The ending is how I wanted it to end from the beginning.
