“But I don’t regret anything. I learned a lot.” —Hedy Lamarr An ambitious teenaged Austrian actress of Jewish heritage, Hedwig Kiesler is tainted by her nudity in the art film Ecstasy. A hasty marriage to a munitions mogul is her refuge from scandal, but it cannot survive his jealousy and possessiveness—or her discovery he supplies arms to Hitler’s regime. Hedy flees husband and homeland for Hollywood, where Louis B. Mayer transforms her into an icon of exotic glamour. Professional success clashes with her personal life as marriage and motherhood compete with the demands of studio and stardom. Roused to action by the atrocities of World War II, Hedy secretly invents a new wireless technology intended for her adopted country’s defense—and unexpectedly changes the world.
That is a very eye-catching cover.
A very nice cover I hope the novel will be equally nice...
Oh nice one!
J Lenni, yes! It really is
That really is an eye catching cover!
Looks like a good one. And most likely would go well with watching the recent movie, Bombshell: The Hedy Lamar Story.
