In this second installment of the Alex and Eliza trilogy by Melissa de la Cruz, Eliza Schuyler (now Eliza Hamilton) is in disbelieve and absolutely furious! She assumed that her married life with Alexander Hamilton would be peaceful despite the progression of the American Revolution, but she’s just learned that Alex plans to ask George Washington for a commission so he can command his own troops—and she didn’t hear it from him. Washington grants the request, and Eliza is forced to wait and worry about her husband until the war is over and he is safe at home again. What will happen when Alexander comes home from the war and they move to New York City to start a law practice? Will the law practice be prosperous, or will the British ruin Eliza’s marriage once more? This historical novel is based on fact with a few fictional renditions; however, the author’s note at the end explains what is fact and what is fiction. The plot moves along briskly, and the descriptions give a good glimpse of life in the late 18thcentury. Political issues of the times are described accurately. Overall, Love & War: An Alex & Eliza Story is a fun historical read with action and a hint of romance. Submitted by: Ann Mathews
