Synopsis

The Holland Sisters Their Influence on the Success of Their Husbands Perkin, Kipping and Lapworth by Eugene G. Rochow, Eduard Krahe

It is said that behind every successful man there stands a devoted and capable woman. The three famous chemists Perkin, Kipping and their collaborator Lapworth married three sisters: Mina, Lily, and Kathleen Holland. The three Holland sisters kept their husbands in close and very productive collaboration throughout their lives, thereby greatly increasing their scientific output. The life and work of the men is thoroughly documented, but little is known about their wives. Professor Eugene G. Rochow, a world-renowned scientist, wrote this biographical historical novel with the help of a grandson, Dr. Brian Kipping. A factually-based novel written in an imaginative style that provides an absorbing and intriguing insight into the life and work of a productive scientific family.
