From the 1920s comes a tale of passionate love persisting through opposition. In 1922 Barnes Wallis, aged 35, fell for Molly Bloxam who was setting off to study science at University. Her father decreed Barnes must teach Molly mathematics in his letters. Mathematics with Love presents, for the first time, the tender and witty results of this curious dictat, deftly narrated by the couple's daughter, Mary. This evocative snapshot of a twenties courtship offers a surprising insight into the early life of a World War Two hero, and a great way to learn a little mathematics.
