My Theodosia Summary

My Theodosia by Anya Seton

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

My Theodosia 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

About Anya Seton

Anya Seton was born in New York City and grew up on her father's large estate in Cos Cob and Greenwich, Connecticut, where visiting Indians taught her Indian dancing and woodcraft. One Sioux chief called her Anutika, which means 'cloud grey eyes', a name which the family shortened to Anya. She was educated by governesses, and then travelled abroad, first to England, then to France where she hoped to become a doctor. She studied for a while at the Hotel Dieu hospital in Paris before marrying at eighteen and having three children. She began writing in 1938 with a short story sold to a newspaper syndicate and the first of her novels was published in 1941. She died in 1990.
