Description

‘Excellent’ The Times
‘One of the best novels I have read this year’ Iris Costello
‘A luminous, pin-sharp portrait of a true trailblazer’ Zoe Howe

Societies are oiled with the unpaid, unaccounted for, work of women. It is the very glue that binds us together, and yet we are blind to it; a woman’s work remains invisible.

Rosalind Franklin knows that to be a woman in a man’s world is to be invisible. In the 1950s science is a gentleman’s profession, and it appears after WWII that there are plenty of colleagues who want to keep it that way.

After being segregated at Cambridge, then ignored and put down in the workplace, she has no intention of being seen as a second-class citizen and throws everything into proving her worth. But despite her success in unlocking the very secret of life, the ultimate glory is claimed by the men she left in her wake.

Inspired by the true story of a woman so many tried to silence, Rosalind is a tale of hope and perseverance, love and betrayal … of real-life lessons in chemistry.

‘A poignant, compelling novel that takes us into the heart and mind of Rosalind Franklin as she struggles for recognition in a man’s world’ Louisa Treger

‘Loved this immersive journey into the life of a woman who changed the world’s understanding of what makes us who we are’ Emily Chung

‘An engaging novel that intertwines the personal and the universal like braided strands of DNA’ Luna McNamara

‘Rosalind paints a shocking and necessary portrait of institutional misogyny in mid-century science’ Nikki Marmery
