Release Date: April 3, 2018

“Not since I read Erik Larson’s Dead Wake have I had such an edge-of-my-seat immersion into historical events. [...] No study of Alexander Hamilton would be complete without reading this book.”–Karen White, New York Times bestselling author

From the New York Times bestselling authors of America’s First Daughter comes the epic story of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton—a revolutionary woman who, like her new nation, struggled to define herself in the wake of war, betrayal, and tragedy. In this haunting, moving, and beautifully written novel, Dray and Kamoie used thousands of letters and original sources to tell Eliza’s story as it’s never been told before—not just as the wronged wife at the center of a political sex scandal—but also as a founding mother who shaped an American legacy in her own right.

A general’s daughter…

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…

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…

My Dear Hamilton is a poignant and powerful tale that gives us a glimpse into the life of one the worlds most notable women in our nations history. From the very first page of this telling story you will be pulled into this woman's world and have the opportunity to not only see the world through her eyes, but also get a tangible feel for it too. Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton has never really been given the opportunity to shine in our history books, almost always taking a backseat to her famous husband, but that all changes with this book... she shines brightly! It follows her through the many stages of her life, the struggles she faced after her husband's transgressions, and how she fought hard to overcome it all... and it was downright inspiring!!

I am somewhat of a newbie to the historical fiction genre, having tried it in the past and deciding it wasn't my cup of tea, but I have to say not only am I overjoyed that I decided to take a second chance on it, despite that fact, but that this one may just have swayed my opinion in a BIG way. After this impressive and delightful re-introduction, I think it is safe to say that I will be making time to read more from these two very talented ladies. I highly recommend you get your hands on this book, it is a beautifully crafted tale that should not be missed! 

I requested an advanced copy of this title from Edelweiss, and voluntarily read and reviewed.
