Ada Lovelace: the Countess who Dreamed in Numbers' is a carefully researched novel that tells the astonishing story of the real-life young woman who saw the coming of the computer age nearly a century before it occurred. Feisty, rebellious and beautiful, Ada Lovelace, born Ada Byron (1815-1852), was also a genius known for writing the very first computer programs. The only legitimate daughter of poet Lord Byron, a man exiled from England for his scandalous poetry, wild sexual exploits and gambling debts, Ada inherited her father's imagination – much to her mother's horror. Desperate to keep her daughter respectable, Lady Byron tutored Ada rigorously in mathematics, hoping to quash any creative impulses her daughter might have. Ada's life grows more complicated when Lord Byron apparently returns to England. She's thrilled when her father begins to visit her in secret, but will he help or hurt Ada's dream of being recognized as a true scientist?

Ada Lovelace (1815–1852) was the daughter of Lord Byron, a poet, and Anna Isabella Milbanke, a mathematician. Her parents separated when she was young, and her mother insisted on a logic-focused education, rejecting Byron’s “mad” love of poetry. But Ada remained fascinated with her father and considered mathematics “poetical science.” Via her friendship with inventor Charles Babbage, she became involved in “programming” his Analytical Engine, a precursor to the computer, thus becoming the world’s first computer programmer. This picture book biography of Ada Lovelace is a compelling portrait of a woman who saw the potential for numbers to make art.
