Publisher's Summary

A New York Times Best Seller!

The thrilling romance of young Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler continues in the sizzling sequel to the New York Times best-selling Alex & Eliza: A Love Story

Albany, New York, 1781. As the war for American independence rages on, Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler begin their new life as a married couple. Still, Alex is as determined as ever to prove his mettle and secure his legacy...even if that means leaving his beloved Eliza behind to join the front lines at the Battle of Yorktown. But when the war unexpectedly arrives on Eliza's doorstep, she must fight for a better future - for their fledgling country and for her marriage.

Yet even after the Revolution comes to its historic close, Alex and Eliza's happily ever after is threatened. Eliza struggles to build a home in the hustle and bustle of New York City just as Alex's burgeoning law practice brings him up against his greatest rival - the ambitious young lawyer Aaron Burr. And with Alex's star on the rise, Eliza can't help but feel neglected by a husband who seems to have time for everyone but her. Torn apart by new trials and temptations, can Alex and Eliza's epic love survive life in the big city?

The battles are just beginning in the sumptuous sequel to Melissa de la Cruz's New York Times best-selling Alex & Eliza: A Love Story.

Chapters are divided weirdly in this audiobook unlike others

I loved the audiobook! However, whenever I read an audiobook, I read both the audiobook and the physical book. So it’s nice to go back and forth easily when the chapters are set up properly. Unfortunately, this audiobook is set up horribly to the point where there are 44 chapters divided into 5-7 minutes increments when in reality there are only 28 chapters in the physical book. The chapters should be divided just like the physical book. How am I supposed to find my place if I have to jump around?

Insult to history

I used to love this series until I learned more about the real Alex and Eliza and realized that this series is an abomination as far as historical accuracy goes. I read a lot of historical fiction and understand that sometimes authors take creative liberties. Well this author took so much liberties that the most accurate thing in this book are the names of Alex and Eliza!
The narrator is fine and the story is a nice story if you know nothing of the time period and so long as you don’t catch all of the discrepancies and lack of historical knowledge of the real Hamilton’s. The author could have and should have done a bit better to incorporate more historically accurate details and she still would have had an good story.

A Must Read!

I love this book, a great sequel to the original book,”Alex and Eliza.” This book is great for YA readers. It’s a romance with a spunky twist. All in all, amazing!
