Discover Emma Wedgewood (Mrs. Charles Darwin), Alma Reveille (Mrs. Alfred Hitchcock), and 26 more women who stood behind their alpha males, for better or worse, and helped steer the course of history. This witty, illustrated collection will surprise and enthrall readers looking for new insight into these historic male figures--and the powerful women who propelled them to the top.
The book's easily digestible format of short chapters noting the highs and lows of these women's lives is attention-grabbing and enlightening, proving that although we might not know their stories, we should.
