Jonah and Katherine come face to face with Albert Einstein in the fifth book of the New York Times bestselling The Missing series. Jonah and Katherine are accustomed to traveling through time, but when learn they next have to return Albert Einstein's daughter to history, they think it's a joke'they've only heard of his sons. But it turns out that Albert Einstein really did have a daughter, Lieserl, whose 1902 birth and subsequent disappearance was shrouded in mystery. Lieserl was presumed to have died of scarlet fever as an infant. But when Jonah and Katherine return to the early 1900s to fix history, one of Lieserl's parents seems to understand entirely too much about time travel and what Jonah and Katherine are doing. It's not Lieserl's father, either'it's her mother, Mileva. And Mileva has no intention of letting her daughter disappear.

Einstein had a secret daughter?! These books are always fascinating...and lead me to search out more information.

Without real spoilers, this was a great book that's taking the young reader breathlessly to what I'm sure will be a stunning conclusion. Disappointed we still didn't learn Jonah's identity, but surprised we learned JB's...! Wow!

And how can they fix it?Jonah and Katherine end up back in time again, in 1903, where a botched job of returning Albert Einstein’s secret daughter Lieserl has somehow critically damaged time itself. Cut off from all communications with other time travelers, they discover a second problem: Albert Einstein’s wife, Mileva, knows they’re there. And she’s determined not to let anyone take away her daughter.
