Publisher's Summary

From the number one New York Times best-selling author of The Witches of East End and The Descendants comes the love story of young Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler.
Albany, New York, 1777.
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, 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.

Expected so much more

I decided to read this book because I did have some struggle with the lack of the love story in the musical and this book promised me a love story that " will shape a nation " so I was so excited to dive into this no matter what .. alas, all those hopes were squashed the moment Alexander ( Alex
) first made aapearance in the schyler house .. he was such a dull character and did not feel like a great worrior who is the right hand mand for colonel Washington .. and Eliza made matters worse with her typical generic character of Elizabeth Bennet .. no depth in her character and struggle at all ..the love story was just a remake of pride and prejudice and not even a good remake at that .. I didn't find any enjoyment reading (or listening) to this book except for the last few chapters since the story does end on a happy note
the narrator did the best she could for the book but even her nicce performance couldn't get me interested in the story
