Christine M. Whitehead’s new novel seamlessly blends fact and fiction to tell the story of Finn Hemingway, the daughter of well-known American novelist. While there might not be a “Finn Hemingway” in the historical records, this novel would lead readers to believe otherwise while opening eyes to the gender politics of the 1900s.
In Hemingway’s Daughter, Finn Hemingway wants three things: to become a trial lawyer, to find true love, and to impact writing, much like her father. Unfortunately, becoming a trail lawyer is nearly impossible in an era when Ruth Bader Ginsburg is being told to type and when a man who is 500th in his law school class is hired over a woman who is first in hers. Finding true love never works out for the Hemingway’s, either. And writing in a way that mattered to her father? That would take a miracle.
But that doesn’t stop Finn from trying…
New life in the story of Ernest Hemingway
Critics have applauded Whitehead’s ability to incorporate real events that occurred around Ernest Hemingway’s life while also involving the fictionalized Finn in a very natural way. Whitehead even takes it to the next level by buildings Finn’s supporting cast in the book based on real people, which makes the work even more convincing.
Hemingway’s Daughter also presented a lens into what Ernest Hemingway would be like as a father. Instead of simply knowing Ernest as a writer, the novel delivers a deeper connection than most accounts of Hemingway’s life—a familial connection.
The book, represented by MindStir Media, has received praise from readers and editorial reviewers alike. Hemingway’s Daughter has received nothing but five-star ratings on Readers’ Favorite.
Shrabastee Chakraborty for Readers’ Favorite said, “While the central character never existed, you couldn’t have guessed it from the book. This is a gem of a book, a heartwarming read to anyone who wished to read realistic fiction.”
Emily-Jane Hills Orford added, “The reader will instantly feel compassion for the protagonist as she struggles to achieve her dreams and live her life free of the Hemingway aura. A brilliantly poignant story.”
Many more of the editorial reviews can be found on the book’s Amazon page.
