Behind the most timeless of heroes stands an exceptional heroine . . .

I, Eliza Hamilton

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.

Scott expertly handles the complex history and complicated romance … Readers will be captivated by the affecting portrait [she] has painted of Eliza as an American patriot who was witness and counsel to Alexander’s enduring legacy and a heroine tested by his romantic recklessness.
