Miranda Seymour brings to life Ada Lovelace, the only legitimate daughter of Lord Byron, a woman ahead of her time. Raised by her mother she became the protégée of mathematician Charles Babbage, expanding many of his theories, and predicting the dawn of the computer era. She was also a compulsive gambler, who lived in Surrey for much of her married life. Her story is told in Seymour's latest book, In Byron's Wake: The Turbulent Lives of Lord Byron's Wife and Daughter.
