    "My Dear Hamilton" is the story of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, a woman who came from a storied family who goes on to marry one of America's founding fathers. It would be easy to define Eliza as simply Alexander's wife but she was so much more than that. I have been obsessed with the Hamil...

    5 star studded stars for you Mrs Eliza Hamilton were truly a star. Alexander and Eliza met at George Washington's headquarters in the year 1780. From all accounts Alexander was quite taken with Elizabeth (Betsy and later Eliza) and she with him. Their backgrounds could not have been...

    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 ...

    I was worried picking this book up that it would be a disappointment after reading America?s First Daughter. I wondered if the authors would seem like a one trick pony, will they be cranking out these historical fiction novels? And though I am rating it lower than the previous book, ...

    Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton was an independent thinking, courageously strong woman. Her father thought of her as the practical daughter. She says of herself ". . . if there is anything that marks my character, it's that I have never rested easily in the face of injustice." The Schuyler...

    Eliza, known as Betsy as a child, is the daughter of General Philip Schuyler. Out of all of her sisters, she is the one that is a bit of a tomboy and challenges conventions. She has many admirers, but once General George Washington's aide, Alexander Hamilton, catches her eye she is smi...

    2 stars It's not a bad book, I mean it's about America's history but I found it so boring. I wanted more juice, like more of the drama between Angelica and Eliza. After finishing the book I understand why that's not the focus but in general Eliza was too forgiving which made me not...

    Hamilton is everywhere thanks to Lin-Manuel Miranda! All of a sudden US History is cool again and everyone wants to get their hands on the hottest tickets in town! Currently the musical is playing in Portland which is near where I live and tickets are going for $400 a pop. I?ve be...

    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 instr...

    My Dear Hamilton was my #1 highest anticipated book of 2018 and I'm so very glad to say that it was everything I wanted and it even exceeded my expectations, which is something that almost never happens. It's the best book I've read this year! Now it's been almost a week since I finish...

    So excited to read this book! I've read all of Stephanie Dray's novels. I've just begun re-reading Lily of the Nile, in fact; I loved it that much. And now I hear she's written another novel about another one of my favorite historical characters? Color me ecstatic! Edit: And she lik...

    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 charact...

    Easily my favorite book of 2018 and I highly doubt anything will knock it out of that #1 spot. I'm left with goosebumps. Such a rich book. Chock full of history and so engrossing. If you love history, you'll love this book. I'm left respecting Hamilton the founding father but truly lov...

    You can read this and all of my reviews at LitWitWineDine. Prior to reading this book, I was not wrapped up in all of the Hamiltonmania. I have not seen Hamilton on Broadway. I have not listened to a single song on the soundtrack. That has all changed, my friends. I am a belie...

    I received an advanced reader?s copy of this book from Goodreads Giveaways and I?m so glad I did! After seeing Hamilton on Broadway a couple of years ago I, like the authors, wanted to know more about Eliza Schuyler Hamilton. Much to my chagrin, there really weren?t any books (hi...

    This was a wonderful and fascinating book. It?s called a novel, and I don?t know how much was true and how much was fiction. I imagine though that it is mostly true. Since I am not a history fanatic, I knew very little about the details of the Revolutionary War, and found a lot of ...

    I've always been fascinated with Alexander Hamilton (more recently because of Lin-Manuel Miranda) but I didn't realize what an extraordinary woman Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton was throughout her lifetime. This book was brilliantly written and opened my eyes to the hardships that Eliza f...

    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 whe...

    HELPLESS. Best of wives and best of women. All right, here's the thing: American history is terribly boring and this book is ridiculously long. It took me four months to finish it -- which never happens -- and that's taking into account that I DNFed it at the 78% mark. I also t...

    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 mate...
