(PRLEAP.COM) "Secret Traces of the Soul of Mileva Maric Einstein," a new book by Svetlana Alter, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

For much of the world, Albert Einstein might just be the patron saint of science. Why not, when virtually all works, scientific or other, pay tribute to the achievements of this man? Given that he had done so much for humanity who then would venture to question his own mortal being?

The entire endeavor then must seem unorthodox. We seek to learn of this man's contributions and cringe at the slightest mention of a possible shortcoming. Such traces perhaps would breach the very fabric of space-time itself, where perhaps now rests the soul of the man. Most of us might be inclined to say to ourselves, if Einstein himself had any issue about his own past, it must have been at a small price in comparison to his achievements.

In "Secret Traces of the Soul of Mileva Maric Einstein," Svetlana Alter documents the influence of Mileva on Albert as partner, pillar, and physicist, in her own right; continually supporting her beloved husband in the shadows. Alter provides an insightful understanding of the life untold of the woman behind the man, accepting, but all the while playing a Madam Curie to her husband, unknown and unrecognized.
