The Hamilton story retold through the eyes of Aaron Burr's beautiful and defiant daughter, Theodosia. A sweeping historical romance perfect for fans of the musical, and for readers of Philippa Gregory.

Dear Theodosia . . .

Theodosia Burr is unwaveringly devoted to her father, Aaron Burr: charming politician, Vice President of the United States, and the man who will eventually end Alexander Hamilton's life in a duel. In return, Aaron worships his daughter, lavishing her with an attention that not all of polite society find appropriate.

But for all his charisma, Burr is an arrogant man - and his ambitions will force his dear Theodosia to choose between the plantation owner he insists she marry, and the soldier that fate keeps throwing her towards.

Those same ambitions will set in motion a chain of events fated to end in treason and tragedy, in a story that the world will never forget . . .

'To read Seton is to enter into another time with such conviction that it seems as real as the present' Philippa Gregory

MEDIA REVIEWS
Anya Seton's portraits of Aaron and Theodosia Burr alike are vivid and credible . . . The narrative is well sustained, and provides as background an entertaining account of the manners, the ways of living and traveling and entertaining followed during the early years of the nineteenth century * New York Times *
Miss Seton's enthusiasm for both character and period is infectious * Daily Telegraph *
Anya Seton takes us into other worlds, making us live for a few hours on a grand scale * Women's Journal *
Perhaps the greatest gifts Anya Seton brings to her historical novels are the zest of her narrative, the life she breathes into the most insignificant characters, and the atmosphere of the era she evokes around them * Books and Bookmen *
Wonderful historical novels -- Alison Weir
