I, Ada: Rebel. Genius. Visionary

By Julia Gray

The early life of Ada Lovelace, the 19th-century mathematician who is considered by many to be the world's first computer programmer.

Ada Byron is rich and clever, but she longs to be free. Free to explore all the amazing ideas that come to her imagination, like flying mechanical horses and stories inspired by her travels. Free to find love and passion beyond the watchful gaze of her mother and governesses. And free to learn the full truth about her father, the notorious Lord Byron. Then Ada meets a man whose invention might just change the world – and he needs her visionary brilliance to bring it to life . . . A wonderfully witty and poignant portrayal of the young life of Ada Lovelace, the 19th-century mathematician who is hailed as the world’s first computer programmer.

  • Ada Lovelace is fast becoming one of the best-loved and well-known Victorian figures and an icon for women in STEM
  • Includes a factual section with further information about Ada's life, her mathematical discoveries and their impact on the world
