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.

A Pleasant Surprise

As a Spaniard I am not too familiar with the United States of America's less-known historical figures, but the summary reminded me of Jane Austen's books, so I decided to give it a try. I must say that I liked quite a lot Cassandra Campbell's performance and that the story was a lot of fun. I learnt a lot of history and I even decided to read more about the historical characters. To sum up, this was a very pleasant surprise and I would love to read the sequel as well.

Disappointing

I was just so disappointed by this book. Having extensively studied this topic, I was just expecting this book to be... more. But it was slow and dry and boring. The characters are completely different to how they were in history, which I think is the major tragedy of this book and the blatant manipulation of historical events was painful to read.
