From the New York Times best-selling 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. In this haunting, moving, and beautifully written book, 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.

Take a drink each time our intrepid heroine says “My Husband”. Cassandra Campbell is an excellent narrator. “America’s First Daughter” by the same authors was very good. This potentially excellent story is ruined by the repetition of the phrase “My Husband”. Ms. Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, once married, will make sure we know of her wedded state by always referring to Alexander Hamilton as “My Husband”. Once the drinking game begins, I can only hope “My Husband” will pick me up off the floor and put me to bed.

I expected better from Stephen Fry. Turns out I was expecting Stephen Rea. My mistake. This over the top performance ruins the stories. Take it down a notch Mr. Fry. And then I saw the was a version read by Simon Vance in the top 100…Simon, will you read me a story? “AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY”
