I, Eliza Hamilton

Two Nerdy History Girls is a blog I subscribe to. The bloggers are two women, Loretta Chase and Susan Holloway Scott; the former writes historical romances and the latter historical novels and, under the pen name Isabella Bradford, historical romances. They both pride themselves on doing extensive background research for their books. Their blog posts often feature information they have come by as a result and are always fun to read. A bonus: every Sunday they present a roundup of other blog posts they find interesting.

Susan has a new book coming out in September, a historical novel called I, Eliza Hamilton. I suspect she got her inspiration from the highly successful Broadway play Hamilton. Eliza Schuyler was the wife of Alexander Hamilton. I look forward to seeing what Susan does with her story.

For my posts on Eliza, her sister-in-law-Angelica Schuyler Church, and Hamilton’s mistress Maria Reynolds see here, here, here, and here.

  2. I must have been in deadline panic when this first appeared – thank you so much for highlighting “I, Eliza Hamilton”! As much fun as it’s been to write a book with a soundtrack, my inspiration didn’t come from the musical. My very first novels were set during the American Revolution, and I’d wanted to return to the period to write Eliza Hamilton’s story for a long time. But for the last decade or so, the publishing world has considered that era to be a non-seller, and wouldn’t consider novels set in late 18thc America. Thanks to Lin-Manuel Miranda, however, that has all changed, and I couldn’t be happier. Eliza Schuyler Hamilton was an amazing woman, and she deserved to have her side of the Hamilton story told. I’m honored to have done so, and I dare to hope she’d approve. 🙂
