Book Description

Providence, Rhode Island, 1775: At the glorious moment of the American nation’s birth, little Betsy Bowen is born into grinding poverty.

She is raised in a brothel, indentured as a servant, and when her widowed mother is jailed, she toils at backbreaking labour in a workhouse. Like all new Americans, the indomitable Betsy is driven by dreams—of security, of status, of wealth….

But most of all she dreams of being reunited with her father – none other than George Washington, a founding father of the United States of America and the nation’s first president. Sharp wits, good humour and a thirst for education help single-minded Betsy reinvent herself, and as Eliza Capet she pursues her quests. She is determined to create her own property empire, conquer the social elite, and above all, to win her dear father’s acknowledgment.

She also craves love – true romantic love. Though she happily marries French wine merchant Stephen Jumel and makes them both fabulously wealthy, her heart belongs to lawyer, aspiring president, and former Revolutionary War Colonel Aaron Burr. How can Eliza square this circle? How can she find true happiness? What is her ultimate destiny?

Based on true events and real people, Eliza Jumel Burr: Vice Queen of the United States, is an inspiring story of a woman – of women – trapped in a man’s world. With echoes of Daniel Defoe’s classic Moll Flanders, Rubino has crafted a tale of desperation, ambition, heartache and betrayal, borne with grit, humour, and refusal to compromise with what the heart asks first.
