Description for MY DEAR HAMILTON by Stephanie Dray & Laura Kamoie:

A general's daughter?Ǫ

Coming of age on the perilous frontier of revolutionary New York, Elizabeth Schuyler champions the fight for independence. And when she meets Alexander Hamilton, Washington's penniless but passionate aide-de-camp, she's captivated by the young officer's charisma and brilliance. They fall in love, despite Hamilton's bastard birth and the uncertainties of war.

A founding father's wife...

But the union they create -- in their marriage and the new nation -- is far from perfect. From glittering inaugural balls to bloody street riots, the Hamiltons are at the center of it all -- including the political treachery of America's first sex scandal, which forces Eliza to struggle through heartbreak and betrayal to find forgiveness.

The last surviving light of the Revolution?Ǫ

When a duel destroys Eliza's hard-won peace, the grieving widow fights her husband's enemies to preserve Alexander's legacy. But long-buried secrets threaten everything Eliza believes about her marriage and her own legacy. Questioning her tireless devotion to the man and country that have broken her heart, she's left with one last battle -- to understand the flawed man she married and imperfect union he could never have created without her?Ǫ

Connie's Review

This book has a very good narrative about Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton. I enjoyed reading in her words what it was like to be a founding father's wife and all the turmoil that generated. I did feel sorry for her because if we read about Hamilton is true, then she was a very strong woman to put up with Hamilton.

I think this book might have been better if I listened to it, but I had the paperback and read it in that form. Some places were just the facts, but even those were very interesting.

I am giving this 5 out of 5 stars. This is a time in history that I only know the basics and this did open my eyes to some of the things that people don't really learn about in history classes.
