Love, Theodosia

A Novel of Theodosia Burr and Philip Hamilton

A Romeo & Juliet tale for Hamilton! fans.

Love, Theodosia is a smart, funny, swoony take on a fiercely intelligent woman (Aaron Burr's daughter, Theodosia) with feminist ideas and ideals far ahead of her time. Not only a work of well-researched historical fiction, but a refreshing spin on the Hamiltonian era and the characters we have grown to know and love so well. Goldstein shines a bright light on Theodosia, who has long deserved center stage, a young woman struggling to be heard in a turbulent time for our nation. It's also a heartbreaking romance of two star-crossed lovers, an achingly bittersweet “what if.” In Love Theodosia, Alexander Hamilton's son Philip and Burr's daughter Theodosia become smitten, though she is engaged to an artist and Philip is a rakish cad. But the two find each other's intellect irresistible, and in what unrolls like a Jane Austen novel of manners we find ourselves entangled with the Hamilton family once again as the children of famous enemies are driven together despite every reason not to be. 

Lori Goldstein is the author of YA novels BECOMING JINN and its sequel CIRCLE OF JINN, SCREEN QUEENS, and the forthcoming SOURCES SAY. She lives in Boston.
