The story of Ada Byron King, daughter of the famous poet, Lord Byron, and his wife, Lady Annabella Byron. The story begins with Annabella as a young, single woman meeting Lord Byron and regardless of warnings from friends and family, agrees to marry him. The story traces the young life of Ada through rough family times and showing her to always be a child and woman who loved to learn. Her favorite subjects were mathematics and music and her station in life allowed her to meet some of the most brilliant people during that time period in England. She also had an analytical mind that astonished innovative, mechanical engineers and she is considered to be the first computer programmer in the world. An excellent story that was written in a beautiful, loving way! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read historical fiction that closely follows true life! I loved it!
