Description

Free Download My Dear Hamilton Ebook. "An edge-of my sear immersion into historical events...No study of Alexander Hamilton would be complete without reading this book." —Karen White, New York Times bestselling author

"The best book of the year!" —Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Alice Network

Wife, Widow, and Warrior in Alexander Hamilton’s quest for a more perfect union

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. Perfect for fans of Ron Chernow's biography Alexander Hamilton and fans of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton: the Musical.

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…

    This book gave me so much more information about the beginning of the United States than I ever learned in school. And the best thing was, as with other historical novels I've read, I didn't have to wonder which parts were fact and which were fiction. The author explains this, in detail, at the end of the book. The story, which is mainly about the life of Alexander Hamilton's wife, Elizabeth, was thoroughly engaging. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical fiction.
  • Inaccurate & political

    Wish I hadn’t spent money on this. Historical facts (compare multiple sources) twisted to reiterate democrat’s current campaign to make it look like there have always been “republicans” and that the party of Lincoln are the scum of the earth. Sick of everything being this way now, sick of all the lies and Machiavellian plots and all the politicizing. If you want history the way it happened do Not buy this book.

    My Dear Hamilton is a compelling and magnificently crafted historical fiction novel. It’s the second one that I’ve read by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie. And, just like the first book, I devoured it. My Dear Hamilton is a five-star, beautifully written and well-researched read. Although I don’t normally read political books, these two, The First American Daughter, and My Dear Hamilton had me captivated until the very last page. Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie brought the founding fathers, and Eliza Schuyler Hamilton alive for me. My knowledge of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton’s accomplishments, before reading My Dear Hamilton was limited, but now, after finishing the book, Eliza has my complete admiration. She was strong, elegant, and independent. Eliza Hamilton carried herself with grace, even in the face of humiliation, multiple betrayals, and several devastating losses. Mrs. Hamilton’s loyalty to her country and her husband was nothing short of extraordinary. Eliza tells her husband’s story, his greatness, his flaws and his crushing secrets. Although this book is a historical fiction novel, it reads like a biography. I know I’ll be rereading it, while anxiously waiting for the next book crafted by these talented writers. Highly recommended. Thank you, William Morrow Publishing and Edelweiss, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!
