Abstract:

The short life of Theodosia Burr (1783-1813) is hauntingly realized in this bestselling historical novel about the daughter of Aaron Burr, Thomas Jefferson's vice president. A central figure in her father's political fate, Theodosia was immortalized in her father's famous letter that began, "To my dearest Theodosia." From the unsettling calm surrounding Burr before his duel with Alexander Hamilton to Theodosia's passionate relationship with a young soldier, the delicate relationship between one father and daughter is poignantly captured.

"Captures all the drama of the short life of Theodosia Burr (1783-1813). Her father Aaron{u2014}Thomas Jefferson's vice president, most famous for his great duel with Alexander Hamilton{u2014}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."
