The Other Einstein Carnegie’s Maid The Only Woman in the Room Lady Clementine The Mystery of Mrs. Christie Her Hidden Genius
Don’t miss these inspiring reads from Marie Benedict! The story of not-so-famous scientist Mileva Marić, who not only loved Albert Einstein, but also shaped the theories that brought him lasting renown. Discover the story of one brilliant woman who may have spurred Andrew Carnegie's transformation from ruthless industrialist to true philanthropist. Based on the incredible true story of the glamour icon and scientist Hedy Lamarr, this book celebrates the many women in science that history has overlooked. The ferocious story of Clementine Churchill, the ambitious woman who did not flinch through the sweeping darkness of war, and who would not surrender to expectations or to enemies. A thrilling reconstruction of one of the most notorious events in literary history: Agatha Christie's mysterious 11-day disappearance in 1926. Shines a light on Rosalind Franklin, whose world-changing contributions were hidden by the men around her but whose relentless drive advanced our understanding of humankind.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"A fascinating fictionalized account of the consummate political wife." - People

"A true tale of Clementine’s ferocity and ambition through political unrest and two world wars, the novel spotlights one of the most influential behind-the-scenes women of her time." - Parade

"[A] fascinating historical novel about Clementine, Winston Churchill’s wife, keen political partner, and trusted confidant." - Christian Science Monitor

"This outstanding story deserves wide readership. Fans of historical fiction, especially set around World War II; readers who appreciate strong, intelligent female leads; or those who just want to read a compelling page-turner will enjoy this gem of a novel." - Library Journal, Starred Review

"A rousing tale of ambition and love." - Kirkus Reviews

"Well-researched, illuminating account of a complex, intelligent woman." - Booklist

"Winning…the personality of Clementine reverberates in this intimate, first-person account. An intriguing novel, and the focus on the heroic counsel of a woman that has national and international impacts will resonate." - Publishers Weekly

"With a historian's eye and a writer’s heart, Benedict provides an unforgettable glimpse into the private world of a brilliant woman whose impact and influence on world events deserves to be acknowledged." - Lynda Cohen Loigman, author of The Two-Family House and The Wartime Sisters

"The atmospheric prose of Marie Benedict draws me in every single time. Lady Clementine’s powerful and spirited story is both compelling and immersive. Benedict fully inhabits the measured and intelligent voice of Clementine Churchill. Entranced throughout, I discovered the secrets behind a familiar story I thought I knew. Deftly moving from the early nineteen hundreds through World War II, Benedict skillfully paints a vivid picture of the times and life of Clementine, the remarkable woman who was the steady force beside Winston Churchill." - Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis

​Marie Benedict is a lawyer with more than ten years' experience as a litigator at two of the country's premier law firms, who found her calling unearthing the hidden historical stories of women. Her mission is to excavate from the past the most important, complex and fascinating women of history and bring them into the light of present-day where we can finally perceive the breadth of their contributions as well as the insights they bring to modern day issues. She embarked on a new, thematically connected series of historical novels with THE OTHER EINSTEIN, which tells the tale of Albert Einstein's first wife, a physicist herself, and the role she might have played in his theories. The next novel in this series is the USA Today bestselling CARNEGIE'S MAID -- which released in January of 2018 -- and the book that followed is the New York Times bestseller and Barnes & Noble Book Club Pick THE ONLY WOMAN IN THE ROOM, the story of the brilliant inventor Hedy Lamarr, which published in January of 2019. In January of 2020, LADY CLEMENTINE, the story of the incredible Clementine Churchill, was released, and became an international bestseller. Her next novel, the Instant NYTimes and USAToday bestselling THE MYSTERY OF MRS. CHRISTIE, was published on December 29, 2020, and her first co-written book, THE PERSONAL LIBRARIAN, with the talented Victoria Christopher Murray, will be released on June 29, 2021. Writing as Heather Terrell, Marie also published the historical novels The Chrysalis, The Map Thief, and Brigid of Kildare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lady Clementine Has Her Say
By Syd Young on January 12, 2020
I’ve been waiting for this book; it more than delivered. We think of Churchill as a singular man. Now, we know the truth: there is no Churchill without Clementine, just as there is no Roosevelt without Eleanor. Clementine was not elected to a post, but more than did her duty.

Chalk full of marriage, politics, and endurance, this book is for both women and men. And I’m glad Clementine has had her say. The conversations and tone of those conversations between the Churchills seems spot on. Also, I loved its deeper story of how Clementine had to learn to help her “nerves,” which were, in fact, caused by Churchill, despite their great love. He was just a big personality. Or perhaps marriage/ life is just hard, and we women all need to admit to our need for self-care (and give ourselves permission to actually take time off). Mommy guilt and a drive for more are also a deeply resonating part of the book. All this packed into a fast paced treatment of the events from a new, wonderfully vocal and modern female voice.

Clementine speaks of everything Churchill did as “we” did this and “we” did that, just as she claims responsibility for helping Churchill with all of his fine speeches. Other than seeing how she was portrayed in “The Darkest Hour,” I confess to not knowing much about Clementine; I kept wondering how the Brits are going to like this addition to the story of one of their greatest heroes. I, for one, loved getting to know her and hope the book is developed into a movie.

One writing difference which may cause listeners/ readers to hit the back button a few times: the book is written in present tense with backstory in past tense. May Hilary Mantel’s legacy continue (think Wolf Hall); it helps make HF seem as if is unfolding before our eyes, rather than being so yesterday.

This is Benedict’s finest book. Bravo.
