    2.5 Stars. While I thought this was a very informative and well researched book about Ada Lovelace this at times was tedious to read. I didn't know much beforehand about her life except that she was the daughter of the famous poet Lord Byron who was considered a womanizer and who had a possible scan...

    I enjoyed reading about Ada Lovelace's life, especially since the only thing I knew about her was that she is considered to be the first computer programmer.

I had never heard of Ada, but some have credited her with be...

    This was a good fictional account of Ada Lovelace's life. In the future I plan on reading more about her.There is not much else to say because the story speaks for its self....

    DNFThat this book is a 'did-not-finish' makes me super sad. Jennifer Chaiverini has been one of my go-to authors for many years: she was one of the few 'mainstream' authors I could count on for a well-written novel (especially her historical portraits) that was clean. Unfortunately, with this novel,...
