My Dear Hamilton: A Novel of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton Reviews
ELIZA SCHUYLER YOU PRECIOUS BEBE. You deserve to get your story told without your husband’s success overshadowing yours! AND I CAN’T WAIT TO READ IT!
I took a break from my Christian genre to read this book. What a historical rich book! I don’t know how you can read this and not desire to go dive into the history surrounding the founding of our government! Fortunately, I have had studies which already revealed the incredible instrumental role Alexander Hamilton played...and with the rise to fame of the musical Hamilton he’s someone everyone wants to know more about! And it’s well deserved that his story is being told so he can finally claim t ...more
She was the wife of Alexander Hamilton longer than she was Elizabeth Schuyler, daughter of a general, and she was a widow much longer than she was a wife. Eliza Hamilton’s story is dramatized, conflated, compressed and contains well-researched conjecture as little primary source material about her remains. However, Mrs. General Hamilton’s story is peopled with the flawed historic men and women who fought and struggled to create a nation. Prepare yourself for a rollicking read about battles, ball ...more
I received a copy of this book through the Goodreads giveaway program. This was the best book I have read in quite awhile. Some of my favorite books both fiction and nonfiction have to do with the Revolutionary War and its figures so this book already had that going for it. The characters in the book are so vivid and multi-faceted. I thoroughly enjoyed going along with Eliza's struggles to understand her complicated husband and their relationship. This is definitely a book that I'll read again.
Another tour de force from the this dynamite writing team! What a story! What a life!
Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, a daughter in the New York Schuyler family, was a fascinating woman. She met Alexander Hamilton when he was an aide-de-camp to General Washington during the Revolutionary War. Although Eliza had other suitors, she fell in love with the charming, handsome Hamilton and they were wed in 1780.
Alexander Hamilton is portrayed as a brilliant, hard-working man who had important roles in the war and in the new United States government. He was a Federalist who believed in a strong ...more
First I want to say that this is a book that I was really thrilled to get the chance to read. I fell in love with the cover the first time I saw it and I was intrigued by the blurb. And, I'm glad to say that the book was just as good as I had hoped it to be.
My Deat Hamilton is a massive novel, almost 700 pages and it took me around 2,5 days to read it. I was lucky enough to have a weekend off and let me tell you that it's the kind of book that that, despite the size of it, never get boring alt ...more
Thank you goodreads giveaways for an advanced copy of My Dear Hamilton.
I do not hand out 5 star ratings often, but My Dear Hamilton deserves 5 stars - or more, it was my favorite book of the year! I was at first intimidated by the length - over 600 pages - but they just flew by when reading. I love how Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie makes history very interesting and real. They tell the story of Alexander Hamilton and the founding of the country through the eyes of his wife, Eliza. I LOVED this ...more
