While other biographies of Marie Curie focus on her scientific struggles and successes, Marie Curie and Her Daughters: The Private Lives of Science’s First Family concentrates on her personal life and particularly her relationship with her two daughters. One became a scientist like her parent and won her own Nobel Prize; the other pursued an entirely different path (although she ended up marrying a man who won the Nobel Peace Prize — and she was feisty enough to think it was hilarious to be the only one in the family without a Nobel).
That should make for a great story. Unfortunately the result is not well organized and overly fawning. Still, it sheds light on Marie Curie’s struggles to be accepted as a serious scientist and the compromises she had to make to raise her daughters.
