A Founding Mother's Story

I, Eliza Hamilton by Susan Holloway Scott



In order to avoid stating the obvious, I see no reason to start this review with a story synopsis. This is because I believe that even those with only a cursory knowledge of American history will have heard the name Alexander Hamilton, and immediately recognize that name as one of the country's "Founding Fathers." In fact, with the popularity of the musical "Hamilton," I'd be willing to bet that more people have heard that name than ever before. On the other hand, even people with good knowledge of late-18th and early-19th century American history may not know much about Elizabeth (aka Eliza) Hamilton, the wife of Alexander. With this novel, Scott decided to fill that gaping hole in our American historical education, and did so through this amazing woman's own eyes.
