“I wish history books in school were written this way. I might have enjoyed it a lot more.
~ Under the Covers
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!
