You know Alexander Hamilton the founder father. You know Hamilton the musical. But do you know Alex & Eliza: The Love Story by Melissa de la Cruz? We have Hamilton, love, fashion AND a GIVEAWAY on our stop on the Alex & Eliza Blog Tour!
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Witches of East End and The Descendants comes the love story of young Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler.
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 that of both her sisters, though she’d rather be aiding the colonists’ cause than dressing up for some silly ball.
Still, she 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 young Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler.
Fashion often reflects society and this is certainly true for Alex & Eliza. Eliza Schuyler is a woman of marrying age and just like her English counterpart Elizabeth Bennett, Eliza Schuyler’s mother thinks her daughter’s priority should be finding a husband. But Eliza has more on her mind than parties and young rich men. There is a war going on and Eliza wants to do her part for her country. While Eliza wants to dress practically in support of the men fighting, her mother wants her adorned in fine silks with silhouettes that accentuate her…assets. Meanwhile, Alexander Hamilton is traveling to New York to meet the Schuyler Family for the first time. Alex is a smart, handsome and destined for greatness, but he’s not great yet. Unlike the well respected and established Schuyler Family, Alex does not have the advantage of coming from one of the great American families. To earn the respect of the country’s wealthiest family, he must look and act the part.
