Summary
  • "A masterful portrait of two remarkable women, revealing how two turbulent lives were always haunted by the dangerously enchanting, quicksilver spirit of that extraordinary father whom Ada never knew: Lord Byron."--Amazon
  • 1815. Annabella Milbanke married the notorious Lord Byron. Just one year later she fled, taking with her their baby daughter, the future Ada Lovelace. Byron himself escaped into exile and died as a revolutionary hero in 1824, aged 36. The one thing he had asked his wife to do was to make sure that their daughter never became a poet. Introduced to mathematics as a means of calming her wild spirits, Ada combined that discipline with astronomy and a visionary imagination. She amplified her explanations of Charles Babbage's unbuilt calculating engine to predict the dawn of the modern computer age. Seymour reveals the ways in which Byron, long after his death, continued to shape the lives and reputations both of his wife and his daughter. -- adapted from jacket
