As the British Industrial Revolution dawns, young Ada Byron Lovelace (daughter of the flamboyant and notorious Lord Byron) sees the boundless creative potential in the “analytic engines” of her friend and soul mate Charles Babbage, inventor of the first mechanical computer.

Ada envisions a whole new world where art and information converge—a world she might not live to see.

A music-laced story of love, friendship, and the edgiest dreams of the future.

Jane Austen meets Steve Jobs in this poignant pre-tech romance heralding the computer age.
