Can't Wait Wednesday: My Dear Hamilton

Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

My Dear Hamilton by Stephanie Dray and Lauren Kamoie
Pub. Date: April 3, 2018



Goodreads says, "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…"

I really enjoyed Dray and Kamoie's last novel, America's First Daughter, so I am excited to see what they come up with regarding the story of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton. What do you guys think?

  1. Eliza Hamilton is becoming quite the popular figure! This is the third book in a year that I've heard about that focuses on her. I have yet to the read the others, but this sounds good as well!

    1. I know, right? I read Alex & Eliza, but I didn't LOVE it and when I saw that these two fantastic authors had this book coming out, I knew I had to give it a try. I think they will be more successful than some of the others just based on America's 1st Daughter which was fantastic! Thanks for visiting, Angela!

  2. Thus sounds really good. I enjoy historical fiction, but haven't read too many set in the U.S.during this time period. I will have to give America's First Daughter a try since you liked it and hopefully this one will be just as good!
