Genres: Historical, Historical Fiction, Young Adult
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.

I fell in love with Hamilton: An American Musical last year, along with half of the human population it seems, and since then have developed an unhealthy obsession with Hamilton-inspired fan art. So, when it came time for me to think up a topic for today’s post for the Alex and Eliza blog tour, I knew I had to share some of my all-time faves!
I love this illustration of the fabulous Schuyler sisters!
This pop-art inspired illustration is so fun and different!
This one makes me swoon! A+E = 4EVA!
The colors in this one are so gorgeous
and I love how inspiring it is.
Out of all the Hamilton fan art I found online, this one reminded me of the book the most.
This portrait of Alexander and Elizabeth with a text overlay may be my favorite of the bunch!
Finally, you know I had to create a mood board inspired by my read of “Alex and Eliza”!
