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.

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.

Editorial Reviews

“While you’re waiting for Hamilton tickets, or if you’re obsessed with American history, this is the book to read this fall. Scott…brings a fascinating woman and tumultuous era to full-fledged life. The lavish details and meticulous research add resonance to Eliza’s voice as she relates the story of her marriage. The sensitive portrayal is a testament to the Hamilton’s abiding love and strong relationship, and proof of one woman’s courage. The even pacing works well, maintaining a calmness within the storm.”– RT Book Reviews, Top Pick “Scott expertly handles the complex history and complicated romance, moving the personal and political plots briskly….Readers will be captivated by the affecting portrait Scott has painted of Eliza as an American patriot who was witness and counsel to Alexander’s enduring legacy and a heroine tested by his romantic recklessness.”  --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
