Staff Reviews

Based on the life of renowned war correspondent Martha Gellhorn, Love and Ruin is a captivating tale of romance and betrayal set in war-torn European cities, idyllic Cuban villas, and the rugged American West. Paula McLain expertly weaves Gellhorn’s struggle for professional recognition with her romance and struggles with Ernest Hemingway to create an unforgettable story.

“The Paris Wife and Circling the Sun were two of the most successful titles of the last decade for Alabama Booksmith, and Love and Ruin is more proof for the pudding that Paula McLain is a member of the master class of historical fiction writers. This exciting page-turner follows Martha Gellhorn as she reports from the center of the action of the Spanish Civil War, then jeopardizes her reputation and very existence by falling in love with the greatest literary giant of the day, Ernest Hemingway. This spectacular read is fact-based and deliciously entertaining.”
