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.
“With Love, Theodosia, Lori Goldstein leaps from YA novels to adult historical fiction with aplomb. In Theodosia Burr she has created a unique and resourceful young woman able to take on the machinations of the fraught 1800 presidential election, explore flawed characters (her own father, Aaron Burr, for one) and come to terms with what it means to love and forgive . . . and love again.”--Sally Cabot Gunning, author of Monticello: A Daughter and Her Father, and Painting the Light
“Love, Theodosia is a fascinating tale of young lovers struggling to escape the gravitational pull of history itself--and the magnetic fathers who will not let them go.”—Elizabeth Cobbs, author of the bestselling novel, The Hamilton Affair
