Read The Hamilton Affair Online Free - Set against the dramatic backdrop of the American Revolution, and featuring a cast of iconic characters such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and the Marquis de Lafayette, The Hamilton Affair tells the sweeping, tumultuous, true love story of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler, from tremulous beginning to bittersweet ending—his at a dueling ground on the shores of the Hudson River, hers more than half a century later after a brave, successful life.
Hamilton was a bastard son, raised on the Caribbean island of St. Croix. He went to America to pursue his education. Along the way he became one of the American Revolution’s most dashing—and unlikely—heroes. Adored by Washington, hated by Jefferson, Hamilton was a lightning rod: the most controversial leader of the American Revolution.
She was the well-to-do daughter of one of New York’s most exalted families—feisty, adventurous, and loyal to a fault. When she met Alexander, she fell head over heels. She pursued him despite his illegitimacy, and loved him despite his infidelity. In 1816 (two centuries ago), she shamed Congress into supporting his seven orphaned children. Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton started New York’s first orphanage. The only “founding mother” to truly embrace public service, she raised 160 children in addition to her own.
With its flawless writing, brilliantly drawn characters, and epic scope, The Hamilton Affair will take its place among the greatest novels of American history.

This is for fans of Hamilton-the-Musical or a solid historical narrative focusing on female characters or historical romance. It's all of those things. The author worked on this when Hamilton was still a lesser known founding father instead of an award winning musical. There is some remarkable ov...

I have always been a history lover. Give me a factual, scholarly, historical tome or a historical fictional story of a time, place or person and I can sit and disappear into that time or place for hours.

As a huge fan of the musical Hamilton, I picked up this fictional rendering of the events hoping for an interesting read. Although it seems clear that the author did some research, the pedestrian prose reminded me of so-so historical fiction aimed at children or young adults. I just wasn't impres...

Very enjoyable novel about Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler Hamilton. It made me wish I remembered more about the Revolutionary War from 8th Grade.

I received this ARC from netgalley.com in exchange for a review.
This book is a fictionalized story about the real relationship between Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler. The couple's story is interesting enough, but I got bogged down as the flow of the story became less 'fictional' and mo...

I had the pleasure of reading an ARC of this book, and also being somewhat witness to its development as, over the last few years, I heard Cobbs talking about her writing this book. I'm so happy it's finding an audience now! Cobbs is simply a stellar historian-- she teaches at Texas A&M and t...
