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 love the Hamilton’s but the price of the audiobook is very expensive wow I mean $46 really that’s a lot for a audiobook
SNOOZE FEST and the cost terrible 😴😴
The whole entire thing is a snooze fest I only read half because so Stinkin irritating 😠.Now the price wow that needs work like A LOT OF WORK you should have made it 10.99 because 32.99 won’t get you anywhere the play is much better than this VERY LOUSY audio book I’m watching Hamilton so disappointing👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
This is a fractured fairytale.
This book was a giant bore fest. It’s nothing more than a romance novel with a lot of actual facts twisted to fit this story. Yes some of it had true actual facts, but very few. The book could have been cut in half. Because it was so expensive I listened to the entire book at an increased speed and while actually giving part of my attention to television.
