Tortured by a secret so shameful that it is beyond bearing, Hamilton is alone in his grief. His heir is dead; his daughter has gone insane with grief. His dear wife, Eliza, now shudders at his touch.
He never intended to send his son to his death. And his wife may never forgive him.
As Hamilton struggles to save his marriage and his family, his political opponent, Aaron Burr, threatens to topple the nation. The nation which Hamilton had risked everything to forge.
Burr, impoverished and embittered by a humiliating loss, blames Hamilton. Burr will stop at nothing to regain his lost power and restore his fortunes. If he can destroy and defame Hamilton in the process, he will have his ultimate triumph.
It is a time of honor, duels, political intrigues, and political violence.
Torn between his duty to his wife and family, and his allegiance to the country, Hamilton must make his choice.
Fans of American history will love this fictionalization of Alexander Hamilton's political and family life in the years leading to his death. Great for fans of Ron Chernow's Alexander Hamilton, Joanne Freeman's Affairs of Honor, Gore Vidal's Burr" - Booklife Review
