But she kept a secret more shocking than her heritage or her marriage: she was a scientist. And she knew a few secrets about the enemy. She had an idea that might help the country fight the Nazis...if anyone would listen to her.

Marie Benedict's novel about Hedy Lamarr was a disappointment. I must say that I am a non-fiction reader and a pure historian. I read this book only because it was part of my book club. While I am fascinated by Hedy Lamarr's life, her talents and story, this novel is not one I would recommend to get to know the real life story of Hedy Lamarr. This book was a fast read and entertaining but I found myself asking over and over, "Where did the author get her information?". The book is also told in a first person format and I did not like how it put words in a real persons mouth. If you are looking for a quick weekend fiction novel about a real person, this is your book. If you are looking for a non-fiction, factual bases book about a real person, do not pick this one up. ( )

Author Marie Benedict provides a biographical fictional account of Hedy Lamarr's life. Beginning with the lead-up to Hitler's rise to power, we see Hedy's Austrian family's awareness of eminent danger to Jews. Her family sees she marries a man who can provide her safety. Is she really safe though when he tries to control her and abuses her. Unfortunately the poor writing and my own lack of interest in all things Hollywood made this a poor selection for our book club. (Some sentences felt like they came from an elementary reader.) A straightforward biography would provide insights into the more fascinating parts of her life without fictional discourses which probably did not play out as the author wrote them. ( )

I read this book as part of a book club, so I purposely decided I wanted to go in without any preconceptions or anything like that. As a result, I didn’t realize until the group discussion that it wasn’t merely a historical fiction/fiction novel but actually a biographical historical fiction novel about the actress Hedy Lamar. It did feel like many things would be stretches as anything biographical. But, if taken as a fiction novel with loose ties to history, it is rather enjoyable.
AFTER reading the novel, do read the author’s note at the end. That’s all I’ll say so as to give nothing away. ( )

I can’t say the writing was great, but the story was engaging, more so when I realized it was about Hedy Lamarr and based, at least in part, on a true story. ( )
  quirkylibrarian | Feb 7, 2021 |
Throughout this entire novel, though interesting and absorbing, I found it impossible to engage with Hedy as a character. It is not until the final few pages of the book, (which are outstanding), that we get a glimpse of the real Hedy, as well as further illumination of the authors ultimate message. How can we not be moved by the failures of past generations to recognize and validate their women and their accomplishments? With fresh eyes and our current broader societal context, Hedy Lamar, in her entirety, can now be appreciated and is transformed into a wonderful role model for generations now and to come. ( )
