The Alex & Eliza Trilogy (Book 1)
1777. Albany, New York.
With sounds of the Revolution in the distance, a grand ball gets underway at the home of one of the country's founding families. Their daughter Eliza, who'd rather be aiding the colonists than dressing for a ball, can barely contain her excitement at the arrival of Alexander Hamilton, a mysterious, rakish young colonel. Though Alex has arrived as the bearer of bad news for the Schuylers, he can't believe his luck 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.
