“When the Stars Go Dark”, by Paula McLain, was a good read.
She wrote, “The Paris Wife”, which I enjoyed even more. Both books draw upon facts. The Paris Wife is the story of Ernest Hemingway’s life with his first wife, Hadley in Paris, and gives Hadley the credit she deserves as a spirited loving woman.
The idea for “When the Stars Go Dark” was sparked by an incident in California, the kidnapping of twelve-year-old Polly Klaas. The story is plot driven and compelling with insight about trauma along the way.
Both books, although based in fact, are categorized as fiction because facts might be embellished.
Please let me know if you read either, or both.
. . . just saying
