Villa America by Liza Klaussmann

villaA tale based on the real-life inspirations for F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender Is the Night finds expats Sara and Gerald Murphy sharing freewheeling days, hosting glamorous parties, and hiding heartbreaking secrets in the 1920s French Riviera.

It was, for a while, a charmed life, but beneath the sparkling veneer, the Murphys are heartbreakingly human. When a tragic accident brings Owen, a young American aviator who fought in the Great War, to the south of France, he finds himself drawn into this flamboyant circle, and the Murphys find their world irrevocably, unexpectedly transformed.
