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
