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. Haunting, moving, and beautifully written, 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…

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If you’ve ever wanted to banter with Hamilton or share a dish of tea with the Marquis de Lafayette, open the covers of My Dear Hamilton and step right into Eliza Hamilton’s parlor…The gang’s all there!” Lauren Willig, New York Times bestselling author
“Not since 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 and learning the true source of the great man’s strength—his wife.” Karen White, New York Times bestselling author
My Dear Hamilton is a masterpiece that is both intimate in detail and epic in scope—a triumph!” Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author
"My Dear Hamilton is the book of the year.” Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author
“Part coming-of-age novel, part romance, and always true to the woman herself… Eliza left thousands of letters for the authors to draw from and as the narrative flows, a complete and very human portrait of Eliza will resonate with today’s readers. This is the perfect example of an epic fictionalized biography.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“[An] entertaining blend of romance, fictional biography, and history.” Booklist
“Through Eliza’s eyes we are treated to an in-depth portrait of Hamilton, not to mention forward-looking psychoanalysis of his genius and personality defects.” Kirkus Reviews
“Beautifully written and meticulously researched. A fascinating read!” Ellen Marie Wiseman, author of The Life She Was Given
