An exemplary example of historical fiction, My Dear Hamilton keeps and surpasses the standards of the genre, as expected from Dray and Kamoie. I adored this novel, not just for the realism and passion given to historical figures, but the steadfast loyalty to the history being discussed.
Once again, Dray and Kamoie have taken a woman, who so often were depicted as being in the shadows, and drawn her to the forefront of the fight for independence in the United States. I loved reading the letters that prefaced each chapter and I was pleased with the authenticity given to the dialogue, while never shying from the fact that these figures were real people, with all the flaws that come along with it.
I highly recommend this novel to anyone with a keen interest in American historical fiction, and eagerly anticipate what Dray and Kamoie bring to the genre next. Five enthusiastic stars!
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.

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…
