Read I, Eliza Hamilton Online Free - 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 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.

An absolutely brilliantly written historical fiction novel! This was very hard to put down! I was unaware of the life's story of Eliza Hamilton before I read this. She has to have been one of the strongest women in history mentally. She was so ahead of her time. Author, Susan Holloway obviously m...

I love historical fiction, especially in the early days of the USA. I enjoyed this novel very much and highly recommend it!
This is the story of Alexander Hamilton's wife Eliza. A fictional (but believable) story told from her point of view. The author wrote with much charm how Eliza meets and is...

I was fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy of this book and feel compelled to share my thoughts on it. Susan Holloway Scott has written an excellent, well-researched book about best of wives and best of women, Eliza Hamilton. In typical biographies (or musicals), Eliza is seen as a periph...

One thing I love about reading Susan Holloway Scott's...

Because I work for a bookseller, I don't like to leave public reviews like this (every book we sell is supposed to be great), but of all the galleys I picked up at BookExpo last month, this one has been my absolute favorite. Sure, I wanted to like it because it's HAMILTON, duh, but it's so much b...

I, Eliza Hamilton is an in-depth look into the romance and marriage of Eliza and Alexander Hamilton. Historical fiction at its finest, personalizing the people, the events, at the birth of our nation. The details and the language are representative of colonial America, told with passion and revea...

After the unparalleled success of the smash hit musical “Hamilton”, the renewed interest in this founding father has inspired several other works of fiction, this novel being one of them. With the now better studied Founding Father having been particularly vocal in his lifetime, even on very inti...
