My Dear Hamilton captured my attention and my heart.  And that’s coming from a woman who hated American History classes.  I wish history books in school were written this way. I might have enjoyed it a lot more.  

My Dear Hamilton tells the story not of Alexander Hamilton but of his wife Eliza Schuyler Hamilton.  It’s a story of her life journey as a daughter of a patriot, a loyal sister, a wife of one of the US founding fathers, and a dedicated mother of eight.  It also shows her views on life, her patriotism, and her dedication to her cause.

“..heartbroken against relentless losses..”;  Eliza encountered one tragedy after the next in her adult life.  It was also heartbreaks and betrayals by not only her husband but the country she served. Despite the tragedies, she handled it all with grace.  This lady was not just a survivor, she was pretty kickass in her days.

Authors Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoei did a remarkable job telling Eliza’s story.  Plucking facts from her past and giving readers a better view of her life. I was in a constant awe and I could not put this book down.  Eliza’s story both saddened and humbled me. I can’t even find the right words to describe her. She is nothing short of amazing, that’s for sure.  

I love that this author duo decided to write books about the women in our American history.  To not only acknowledge their accomplishments, but also the heartaches and hardships they endured.  I’m hoping they keep writing these books. If Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie write it, I will read it!

About Laura Kamoie

Laura Kamoie has always been fascinated by the people, stories, and physical presence of the past, which led her to a lifetime of historical and archaeological study and training. She holds a doctoral degree in early American history from The College of William and Mary, published two non-fiction books on early America, and most recently held the position of Associate Professor of History at the U.S. Naval Academy before transitioning to a full-time career writing genre fiction as the New York Times bestselling author, Laura Kaye. Her debut historical novel, America's First Daughter (March 1, 2016), co-authored with Stephanie Dray, allowed her the exciting opportunity to combine her love of history with her passion for storytelling. Laura lives among the colonial charm of Annapolis, Maryland with her husband and two daughters.

Laura is currently working on My Dear Hamilton (William Morrow, early 2018) about Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, with co-author Stephanie Dray.

About Stephanie Dray

STEPHANIE DRAY is an award-winning, bestselling and two-time RITA award nominated author of historical women’s fiction. Her critically acclaimed series about Cleopatra’s daughter has been translated into more than eight different languages and won the Golden Leaf. Her focus on Ptolemaic Egypt and Augustan Age Rome has given her a unique perspective on the consequences of Egypt’s ancient clash with Rome, both in terms of the still-extant tensions between East and West as well as the worldwide decline of female-oriented religion. She’s also fascinated by the founding of the American Republic and its roots in ancient Rome. It’s her mission to illuminate the stories of women in history and inspire the young women of today.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
