DETAILS ABOUT THE BOOK

A powerful novel based on the incredible true story of Hedy Lamarr, glamour icon and screen star whose groundbreaking invention revolutionized modern communication. Her beauty almost saved her from the rising Nazi party and led to marriage with an Austrian arms dealer. She devised a plan to flee in disguise from their castle, and the whirlwind escape landed her in Hollywood, but she kept a secret more shocking than her heritage or her marriage: she was a scientist!
