Mrs. Einstein
Sylvia Mulholland

The story of the meeting, courship, and short, tempestuous marriage of Albert Einstein and Mileva Maric in early 20th century Europe. Mileva, a dedicated mathematician and physicist in her own right, dreamed of a "scientific partnership" with her husband, much like that of the Curies. But with two children, no money, parental opposition and an almost self-destructive husband, Mileva found that as Albert's star rose, hers fell. She became no more than a stepping stone to Einstein's achieving world fame, though some believe she should have received equal credit with Einstein for his earliest theories.
