Abstract:

"Captures all the drama of the short life of Theodosia Burr (1783-1813). Her father Aaron--Thomas Jefferson's vice president, most famous for his great duel with Alexander Hamilton--holds sway over young Theodosia's heart. But his arrogance forces her to choose between the man he insists she marry and her love for a young soldier who will turn out to play a decisive role in her father's fate. Persuaded by Aaron that she will soon be crowned princess of the Kingdom of Mexico as a result of his treasonable plans, she is received like royalty on Blennerhassett Island, only to end up trying to exonerate him as he awaits trial in a Richmond jail, repudiated by his fickle son-in-law and friends."--Back cover.
