Book Drunkard

“I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” L.M. Montgomery

Wife, Widow, and Warrior in Alexander Hamilton’s Quest for a More Perfect Union

1 Comment


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.

REVIEW:

Having read AMERICA’S FIRST DAUGHTER a few years ago–it was my top book read that year–I knew I just had to read the next offering by the amazing duo of Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie.

While the over 600 page length is daunting, each page was historically rich with impressive detail.  I was transported to the Birth of a Nation and beyond, happily transported to time in history that I’m not especially familiar with (I’m Canadian, after all).  I feel like it was researched extensively and written lovingly so the reader gained insight into the subject matter.

In the very first chapter, Eliza Schuyler Hamilton says “But how, I wondered, could a daughter make a difference?”.  She did.  Oh, yes, she did.  I found it fascinating to read the story of the more famous Alexander Hamilton through the eyes of his wife.  This great lady lived until the ripe old age of 97.  She saw it all first hand and I was completely engrossed from the start.

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…
