My Dear Hamilton: A Novel of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton by Stephanie DrayFrom 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.

The Chrysanthemums And The Storm
At the beginning, Elisa Allen, our main character, can be seen as a mere housewife who feels frustrated about her present life mostly because of the fact her husbands fails to understand her and admire her romantically. - On the other end of the American literature spectrum, there is John Steinbeck, who was also a feminist writer. Characters are an important literary aspect an author uses to communicate their message to their audience.
The story is told from a third-person, objective point of view; it focuses on Elisa. At one point "She knew" , it allows the reader omniscient access into Elisa's thoughts, but for the most part it does not describe her thoughts. The tone of the story is neutral, if not detached. Because the reader does not have access to Elisa's private thoughts, the story lacks the intense emotion of her inner frustrations. Instead, it has a distant, plaintive, somewhat melancholy tone.
