About this item

Marie Curie endures a childhood in Poland wracked with Russian brutality and the death of her beloved mother.

Resigning her teenage years to live as a governess, harsh lessons continue when Maries first love is dashed because she is the help. Her struggles will bring truth to her words:

We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves.

Marie sets course for the famous Sorbonne University in Paris and overturns the status quo for women by graduating first in physics. Her passion for science finds a match when she marries Pierre Curie. Grueling years of research leads to discovering two elements and two Nobel Prizes.

Shattered by Pierres sudden death, and maligned by a media frenzy, Maries noble heart remains. In WWI Marie is driving to the front line with X-ray equipment that will save thousands of wounded from suffering and death.

Rising up from ashes more than once Maries life surpasses science. She inspires readers who believe, like Marie, they are gifted for something.
