Good afternoon everyone!!! I'm so excited to share this cover reveal with you today for the upcoming historical novel, My Dear Hamilton, by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie. They hit it out of the park with their first collaboration, America’s First Daughter, and I’m sure this one will be the same.
To drag out this cover reveal just a little bit more, I first want to share the blurb to whet your appetite!
Wife, Widow, and Warrior in Alexander Hamilton’s Quest to Form a More Perfect Union
From the New York Times bestselling 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, Dray and Kamoie used thousands of letters and original sources 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.
A general’s daughter…
Coming of age on the perilous frontier of revolutionary New York, Elizabeth Schuyler champions the fight for independence. And when she meets Alexander Hamilton, Washington’s penniless but passionate aide-de-camp, she’s captivated by the young officer’s charisma and brilliance. They fall in love, despite Hamilton’s bastard birth and the uncertainties of war.
A founding father’s wife...
But the union they create—in their marriage and the new nation—is far from perfect. From glittering inaugural balls to bloody street riots, the Hamiltons are at the center of it all—including the political treachery of America’s first sex scandal, which forces Eliza to struggle through heartbreak and betrayal to find forgiveness.
The last surviving light of the Revolution…
When a duel destroys Eliza’s hard-won peace, the grieving widow fights her husband’s enemies to preserve Alexander’s legacy. But long-buried secrets threaten everything Eliza believes about her marriage and her own legacy. Questioning her tireless devotion to the man and country that have broken her heart, she’s left with one last battle—to understand the flawed man she married and imperfect union he could never have created without her…
Ok, doesn't that sound awesome!!!?? I have read one novel that involved Eliza Hamilton, and it wasn’t the best novel, but I love her story and done right it can be brilliant. But I know you are here for the cover reveal, so let's get on to it!!!
This is one of the most gorgeous covers that I have seen recently and is different from a lot of what is out there. LOVE IT!!! Releasing April 3, 2018 – that’s a long way off!!
