The love story of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler - based on the story that inspired the bestselling musical Hamilton.
1777. Albany, New York.
As battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, servants flutter about preparing for one of New York society’s biggest events: the Schuylers’ grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of their fledgling country’s founding families, and even prouder still of their three daughters - Angelica, with her razor-sharp wit; Peggy, with her dazzling looks, and Eliza, whose beauty and charm rival those of both her sisters, though she’d rather be aiding the colonists’ cause than dressing up for some silly ball.
Still, Eliza can barely contain her excitement when she hears of the arrival of one Alexander Hamilton, a mysterious, rakish young colonel and General George Washington’s right-hand man. Though Alex has arrived as the bearer of bad news for the Schuylers, he can’t believe his luck - as an orphan, and a bastard one at that - to be in such esteemed company. And when Alex and Eliza meet that fateful night, so begins an epic love story that would forever change the course of American history.
In the pages of Alex and Eliza, #1 New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz brings to life the romance of the young Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler.
Must read for Hamilton fans
I started reading this book this morning after my sister found it a few days ago knowing I'm a huge book reader and Hamilton fan. I've just finished it around 5 minutes and I'm extremely glad she brought it for me, it's not very often I get this emotional and get so many happy tears especially when I'm in the middle of reading other major book franchises but I definitely did on this one. I'm so glad this book has been written it's given a completely new insight in the musical and I'm very great full for that. I definitely recommend it to anyone who's a fan of Hamilton, is a romance reader or someone who wants something good to occupy themselves with. Thank you very very much Melissa for writing this book I can't wait for the next one. Xx
