Summary

Review Excerpts

"I loved the storyline of this book. I felt it was incredibly engrossing and loved the majority of the characters." ---ABookAndAReview

"Tense and dramatic, Hemingway's Girl thrives with vivid characterization and real-life dilemmas." ---The Midwest Book Review

"Tavia Gilbert as the narrator is polished, clearly spoken and wonderful to listen to." ---IAm-Indeed.com

"[Fans] will delight in the complex relationships and vivid setting." ---Publishers Weekly

"Hemingway's Girl proves to be a stunning portrayal of a revered and oft-studied writer and a probing novel of family ties, love, betrayal and a love of the sea---all themes present, perhaps not surprisingly, in Hemingway's works as well." ---Shelf Awareness

Summary

"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 she'd thought it romantic. She hadn't 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 father's 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 World War I veterans who are laboring to build the Overseas Highway.

When Mariella is hired as a maid by Hemingway's 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.
