I was a history major in college, and granted that was back with the dinosaurs, so my memory may be dim but this novel based on the life of Alexander Hamilton’s wife brings me knew insights. I may shake my head over the horrible things being said in politics today, but they had nothing on what was going on in the early years of the country. It broke my heart to hear how Hamilton and Jefferson feuded. It seem almost sacrilegious to find out our founding fathers could hurl such vile words at each other. I’m so glad I read this before seeing the musical Hamilton.

Perhaps my low rating of this book was because I had higher expectations thinking it would be an historical novel that told of Eliza and Alexander loving relationship, and at the same time, give an interesting account of history of the time. The first half of the book was spent with Eliza pining for Alexander. It had its elements of history albeit scattered without detailed description. There was more description of Eliza's dresses and fashion. I admit I didn't finish it. If you are looking for a light read....
