Charles Schermerhorn Schuyler, Aaron Burr's unacknowledged son, returns to America after his self-imposed exile, hoping to arrange a marriage for his daughter Emma, but the two soon find themselves at the centers of American social and political power at a time when the fading ideals of the young republic were being replaced by the excitement of empire
