Win a Copy of "The Only Woman In the Room" by Marie Benedict
About "The Only Woman In the Room"
"Many know Hedy Lamarr as the stunningly beautiful movie star from the 1940s. But few are aware of her marriage to an Austrian arms merchant, Friedrich Mandl, which introduced her to many key players in World War II including Mussolini. Her beauty lent her a veil of invisibility among those powerful men. After escaping Europe, she used the knowledge she garnered to create a frequency-hopping communications system which couldn’t be tracked or jammed. Would her scientific invention assist in the war effort?
“The Only Woman in the Room” by Marie Benedict is for those who enjoy historical fiction and are looking for a strong female character."
