Between his high-profile divorce, struggles with drinking, and grief over the death of his longtime creative partner and best friend, Ethan has slowly let himself fade into the background.

The Only Woman in the Room by Marie Benedict
She possessed a stunning beauty. She also had a stunning mind. Could the world handle both? Her beauty almost certainly saved her from the rising Nazi party and led to her marriage to an Austrian arms dealer. She devised a plan to flee in disguise from their castle, and the whirlwind escape landed her in Hollywood. She became Hedy Lamarr, a screen star.
But she kept a shocking secret than her heritage or marriage: She was a scientist.
