Now bestselling historian H.W. Brands returns to the life of Aaron Burr and finds a seldom-told perspective — Burr as a loving, devoted father. Through letters preserved over the centuries, Brands finds a new clarity to Burr’s life, and fresh context for the life Burr made for himself.

Brands’s book is called “The Heartbreak of Aaron Burr.”
