In this beautifully written novel of historical fiction,
bestselling author Susan Holloway Scott tells the story of
Alexander Hamilton’s wife, Eliza—a fascinating,
strong-willed heroine in her own right and a key figure in
one of the most gripping periods in American history.
“Love is not easy with a man chosen by Fate for greatness
. . .”
As the daughter of a respected general, Elizabeth Schuyler
is accustomed to socializing with dignitaries and soldiers.
But no visitor to her parents’ home has affected her so
strongly as Alexander Hamilton, a charismatic, ambitious
aide to George Washington. They marry quickly, and despite
the tumult of the American Revolution, Eliza is confident in
her brilliant husband and in her role as his helpmate. But
it is in the aftermath of war, as Hamilton becomes one of
the country’s most important figures, that she truly comes
into her own.
In the new capital, Eliza becomes an adored member of
society, respected for her fierce devotion to Hamilton as
well as her grace. Behind closed doors, she astutely manages
their expanding household, and assists her husband with his
political writings. Yet some challenges are impossible to
prepare for. Through public scandal, betrayal, personal
heartbreak, and tragedy, she is tested again and again. In
the end, it will be Eliza’s indomitable strength that makes
her not only Hamilton’s most crucial ally in life, but also
his most loyal advocate after his death, determined to
preserve his legacy while pursuing her own extraordinary
path through the nation they helped shape together.
