Synopsis for Original Title

Aaron Burr's daughter, Theodosia, was dedicated to him with single-mindedness. Better than anyone else in the world, she understood her father. It was to her he unburdened himself and in this reconstruction of Theodosia's life we see him clearly mirrored. Anya Seton treats the unusual relationship in a factual and open manner, sparing us the pedantry of psycho-history. Theodosia Burr emerges as a strong and loyal individual, one who never flinched in the face of what she believed to be her duty.
