About The Book

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 . . .

About the Author

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 ten novels was published in 1941.
