Alex and Eliza: A Love Story

We rated this book:


Alex & Eliza is the young-adult fiction version of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler’s romance. Young Colonel Hamilton does not make the best first impression on Eliza when he first meets her, yet he’s smitten from the get-go. Eliza takes some time and persuasion, but she eventually comes around. This delightful story follows Eliza from the time she meets Alex until their marriage. There is plenty of revolutionary excitement and interesting historical details to make this a truly well-rounded and engaging read.

This outstanding book is like an American Pride & Prejudice. From Eliza’s other eligible sisters, overbearing mother, noble father, witty repartee, and high society parties, this book has everything an Austen lover would hope for in a period romance. Even if you haven’t been caught up in the lovefest of the musical Hamilton, this book will reel you right in with a strong, witty, heroine and her dashing gentleman. The story moves quickly and will keep you turning pages until the very end. It’s extremely well crafted, with a cast of quirky and endearing characters.

This book is a delight to read and could easily be called a modern-day classic. Very highly recommended!
