My highest anticipated book of 2018 is finally released today. I’ve been looking forward to this day for so long so I’m super excited and I absolutely can’t wait to read My Dear Hamilton soon! ♥
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. 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.

The fashion was now all empire waistlines and sheer fabrics à la Grec, which would have left me feeling naked without gloves and shawl. “I am dressed to be seen in society, sir!”
With the tip of his quill pen, he flicked my flimsy shawl to the floor. “And now you are not.” He gave his most irresistible smile.“Your country needs you. I need you. You are my good genius of that kind which the ancient philosophers called a familiar.” His eyebrows nearly waggled. “And you know that I am glad to be, in every way, as familiar as possible with you.”
Smitten by his flirtation, I gave a helpless shrug. “Oh well, for the country then . . .”
I forgot about the dinner party. I forgot everything but the familiar thrill of matching minds with the man I married. “Not that line,” I remember telling him. “That business about the ignorance of facts and malicious falsehoods will be taken harshly.”
“That’s the president’s line, not mine,” Alexander protested.
“Nevertheless, it portrays him as a partisan in the mud,” I argued, and our debate went well into the night. In truth, it went on for days as Alexander worked on the address, scribbling words and crossing them out.
Eventually, he removed the line to which I objected. That and many others, taking into consideration my suggestions, leaving me awed with the magnitude of the masterpiece. I knew, even then, that the Farewell Address was a moving and worthy tribute to the United States and its people. A plea for unity. A statement of purpose and guidance for the nation George Washington helped bring into being.
And because of Alexander Hamilton, I had the great and everlasting fortune to be a part of its shaping.
I have a couple Hamilton historical fiction books on my TBR, but one more couldn't hurt!
The authors' previous book about Thomas Jefferson’s eldest daughter Patsy was amazing so I'm pretty sure My Dear Hamilton will be the same. 😀
What a great excerpt! It sounds what like what I really wanted out of Alex & Eliza but didn't get before I DNFed it.
Thanks for sharing,
