MFOB FEATURED BOOK: My Dear Hamilton: A Novel of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton

From the New York Times best-selling 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, the novel is based on thousands of letters and original sources Dray and Kamoie uncovered 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.
