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.… (mere)

This novel started well and had me chuckling on occasion but the second-half fizzled out so much I was glad when I reached the last page. While I liked Eliza for her determination and strength of character, for me, Aunt Gertrude was the star of "Alex and Eliza". She was a delight.

Unfortunately, like so many YA novels, this one had potential but didn't deliver. ( )

Very sweet version of the courtship of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler. I definitely liked all the tiny musical callouts throughout the book. That being said, the book did not rely on the musical to tell the story. It told the more accurate timeline of events, with Angelica's marriage and Peggy's courtship. I am in for the rest of the series. ( )

I didn't finish this because the audiobook returned itself before I was done, but I wasn't really into it enough to check it out again. I was probably about halfway through, and I think it's a solid choice for kids who like historical fiction, romance, or Hamilton (...obvs). The writing was great, and there are definite moments of humor and lightness mixed with the historical details.

My only real beef with this book is the lack of an author's note; when it comes to historical fiction, an explanation of which bits were made up and what sources the author used is essential and neglecting this is unforgivable, as far as I'm concerned. The novel itself is a fluffy, easy-to-read tale. ( )

A quick, charming romantic account of the courtship of Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler. Perfect for anyone who is Hamilton-obsessed and can't get enough of this founding couple. I flew through it in a day. ( )

Beloved by you, I can be happy in any situation, and can struggle with every embarrassment of fortune with patience and firmness.  I cannot however forbear enter entreating you to realize our union on the dark side and satisfy, without deceiving yourself, how far your affection for me can make you happy in a privation of those elegancies to which you have been accustom.  If fortune should smile upon us, it will do us no harm to have been prepared for adversity; if she frowns upon us, by being prepared, we shall encounter it without the chagrin of disappointment.  Your future rank in life is a perfect lottery; you may move in an exalted you may move in a very humble sphere; the last is most probable; examine your heart.  --Letter from Alexander Hamilton to Elizabeth Schuyler, August 1780
