My Theodosia

My Theodosia

A compelling romance and portrayal of a fascinating figure in American history, from the bestselling author of Katherine.

Theodosia is the daughter of Aaron Burr, Vice President of the United States serving under Thomas Jefferson. She is unwaveringly devoted to her father and he worships her. But his arrogant ambitions force her to choose between the man he insists she marry and the young soldier she truly loves. These same
ambitions set in motion a chain of events that will end in treason and tragedy.

Based on meticulous research, Anya Seton’s first novel, originally published in 1941, captures all the drama of the short life of Theodosia Burr (1783-1813).

Reviews

Miss Seton's enthusiasm for both character and period is infectious
Daily Telegraph
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
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

Anya Seton takes us into other worlds, making us live for a few hours on a grand scale
