Editorial Reviews

Review

"In The Other Einstein Marie Benedict brings us into the life and times of Mileva Mari? Einstein, Albert’s first wife. A brilliant mathematician in her own right, Mileva and Albert plan a life together of equal scholarship, but Albert’s ambitions and Mileva’s role as a wife and mother at the turn of the twentieth century make this an impossibility. Could the theory of relativity actually have been conceived by "the other Einstein"? In this fascinating and thoughtful novel, we learn that this is more than possible." ― B.A. Shapiro, New York Times bestselling author of The Art Forger and The Muralist



"Beautifully written…a finely drawn portrait of a woman in love with the wrong man." ― Jillian Cantor, author of Margot and The Hours Count



"A crusading scientist undone by love....revealing, enlightening." ― Nuala O’Connor, author of Miss Emily



"In her compelling novel… Benedict makes a strong case that the brilliant woman behind [Albert Einstein] was integral to his success, and creates a rich historical portrait in the process." ―
Publishers Weekly

"Benedict's debut novel carefully traces Mileva's life―from studious schoolgirl to bereaved mother―with attention paid to the conflicts between personal goals and social conventions. An intriguing… reimagining of one of the strongest intellectual partnerships of the 19th century." ―
Kirkus Reviews

"Many will enjoy Benedict’s feminist views and be fascinated by the life of an almost unknown woman." ―
RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

"...INTIMATE and IMMERSIVE historical novel....Prepare to be moved by this provocative history of a woman whose experiences will resonate with today’s readers." ―
Library Journal, Editors' Fall Picks

"The
Other Einstein takes you into Mileva’s heart, mind, and study as she tries to forge a place for herself in a scientific world dominated by men. " ― Bustle

"…an ENGAGING and THOUGHT PROVOKING fictional telling of the poignant story of an overshadowed woman scientist." ―
Booklist

"Superb…the haunting story of Einstein’s brilliant first wife who was lost in his shadow." ― Sue Monk Kidd, NYT bestselling author of The Invention of Wings, The Secret Life of Bees, and The Mermaid Chair

​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.
