About this product
- DescriptionA 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 vel, originally published in 1941, captures all the drama of the short life of Theodosia Burr (1783-1813).
- Author BiographyAnya 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.
