Three times table (1990)

...

The story of three generations of women in a British family, with fantasy overtones introduced through the existence of "dragons". I have not read it, and so do not know how significant the mathematical references are to the plot. However, not only does the title reflect some mathematical significance, but I know from reading other reviews that the woman in the middle (daughter and mother) was "expected to be a mathematician" but prefers gardening.

If you've read this book, please write to tell me more about it! -Alex
