Paula Huntley is the author of the book The Hemingway Book Club of Kosovo. The book started out as a journal Huntley kept while she and her husband, Ed Villmoare, lived in Kosovo for eight months between 2000–2001.

Book club 1 read and the very next day Book Club 2 was discussing this work. I much preferred this one. I kept reading passages aloud to my husband - because it was so like our own experiences in Sarajevo. But when Paula Huntley's husband was sent to Kosovo to help establish a legal system, Huntley impulsively decides to accompany him and later jumps into teaching a group of Kosovo Albanians English. Unexpectedly, Huntley falls in love--with the country, with its people. Yes, I'd heard of Kosovo, but I doubt I'd have been able to write a coherent essay explaining much about the conflict there prior to reading this book.
