Review: The Sisters Hemingway by Annie England Noblin
The Sisters Hemingway centers on three sisters- Hadley, Pfeiffer, and Martha Hemingway. Three sisters who are, unfortunately, too familiar with grief and tragedy. In their youth, they had lost their parents and younger sister. As they grew, they each left behind their small town. Hadley went to New York and ended up marrying a senator. Pfeiffer landed a job at a publishing company in New York. And Martha chased her dreams in Nashville. They don’t return home until another tragedy emerges.
I enjoyed The Sisters Hemingway. In essence, this book is about coming home and family. Those two themes were heavily emphasized within the book and I think the author did it beautifully. It was heartwarming and compelling.
The Sisters Hemingway also features an intriguing mystery. Sometimes it is hard to keep a mystery engaging and exciting, but this book does not have this problem. Everything about this book is a page turner, it was hard to put it down.
Although I find myself having a particular liking towards Pfeiffer, all of the sisters well-developed, interesting, and likable characters.
Each sister appeared to have been leaving them dream, but that was far from the truth. Hadley’s marriage was suffering, Pfeiffer had lost her job, and Martha was struggling creatively and just left rehab. They were almost lost. And it was interesting to see them return to their roots and find themselves again. And in addition, learn to be sisters again. Because they distant and guarded at first.
The Sisters Hemingway is a beautifully written book about coming home and coming together.
