hard to die: an afterlife journey of theodosia burr alston

andra watkins, new york times best selling author

you’ve heard the raves about the tony award-winning broadway musical, hamilton. but what happened to ‘dear theodosia,’ the fiery daughter aaron burr serenades? hard to die is an engrossing speculative fiction novel that provides a new take on the uncharted fate of theodosia burr alston, daughter of alexander hamilton’s murderer.

theodosia disappeared at sea in 1813 and her destiny remains a mystery. in hard to die, she reappears 150 years later during the early days of the cold war in new york city. stuck in an in-between, timeless place called “nowhere” – where people whose deaths are unresolved find themselves resurrected under the guidance of a “nowhere” steward – theodosia is presented with an assignment: she must help a living soul navigate a life-changing crossroad. if she fails in her assignment, she will be doomed to a fate worse than death – erased from history’s timeline, forgotten forever.

a pioneer of the emerging speculative fiction genre, hard to die combines elements of history, the paranormal, and suspense to breathe fresh air into the story of theodosia burr alston.
