I Eliza Hamilton
by Susan Holloway Scott

PBR Review I loved this book for several reasons. To start with, Eliza Hamilton was a strong woman, and strong, inspirational women get me every time. I also love reading about the role women played in different eras and the contentment they felt for their place in life. I donít always sense that same contentment in todayís women, and I like to puzzle the why of it. Iíve also been immensely interested in Alexander Hamilton ever since I went to see the musical HAMILTON on Broadway, which was one of the most riveting plays Iíve seen.

This story revolves around Eliza, but in doing so, Scott gives the reader some astounding historical details of our Founding Fathers and the trials of how our country came to be, with a strong focus on Alexander, who was a committed, principled man. Wouldn't I just love to bear witness to what a man like Alexander Hamilton could do for today's divided country? I couldn't help but make comparisons to our current leadership. But most compelling was the marriage and love between Eliza and Alexander. From the start itís obvious, they were destined to be together. Recommend.Back.
Talking Points: Eliza was a strong woman who was very much in love with her husband. This and the fact that she was a product of her times will make for great discussion. Alexander Hamilton was also a formidable man, and this story gives an intimate look at him as a husband, father and man. Some of the other Founding Fathers of America are also discussion worthy. Most will not be able to resist a comparisons to our current leadership. I know I couldn't.
PBR Reader Comments:
This is the story of Eliza Hamilton, and it's an intimate look at her life and her family's life. A lot of time is devoted to her husband, Alexander Hamilton, a very passionate man, which was not always a good thing. There are also many fantastic details of the Revolutionary period in our country's history.
