One of my favorites. Loved it. Excellent way to absorp history from a different perspective
Read this and RC’s book before seeing the Broadway Series play Hamilton, and both gave me insight in what was happening! The Book has Good historical content mixed with best guess fiction. A very nice historical fiction book based on Eliza Hamiltons point of view. It is long read though. I felt some things could have been left out and should have, to be more concise, but other than that an enjoyable audible read!
Fascinating, if a bit wordy, book. Excellent narrator.
I have read/listened to most of the historical fiction on Hamiltons and surrounding figures. I was reluctant about this one as it felt more fiction than historical. However, I was wrong to write it off. Incredible story telling with emphasis on the emotional and lived experience of Eliza. The narration is one of best I’ve listened to, superb with great use of dialect and accents. The story really takes you on a powerful (and some times steamy) journey of love, loss, and living at this moment in time. Highly recommend
Loved this perspective after seeing the musical, Hamilton.
I bought both My Dear Hamilton and Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow, as I love the Broadway musical Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda. I already have above average knowledge of the time (I'm a genealogist) and Hamilton is my favorite Founding Father. But I wanted a wider base of knowledge to draw upon when enjoying the musical. I also enjoy a good love story with angst just like most women. My Dear Hamilton did just that. You can tell the authors did research while writing this book. And for those who are fans of Eliza Schuyler-Hamilton this a great book to read/listen too as its told in first person perspective (Eliza is the Narrator). I also highly recommend reading/listening to this book in conjunction with Ron Chernow's biography, that the musical is based on. I was very pleased.
