    David Bodanis charts the long and tempestuous relationship between Voltaire and the beautiful aristocrat, Emilie du Chatelet, who was herself a brilliant mathematician and transformed our understanding of energy. Their story is 'a potent mix of romance, science and history' set against a background of swordfights and lottery scams, imprisonment and border escapes.
