Love & War (Alex & Eliza #2) Reviews
In this sequel to “Alex and Eliza” Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schulyer are newly married, but war continues to separate them. Alex is on the battlefront and Eliza is at home.
I’ll be honest… this had a TOTALLY different feel from “Alex and Eliza” which was historical fiction, but also had the tone of a sweet romance. In “Love and War” I was expecting at least a little bit of the L-O-V-E to come into play, but sadly, Alex and Eliza seem to be apart in 90% of scenes.
Sadly, there were large chun ...more

I actually really like this book but I lost all on interest in it so I'm moving it to my DNF shelf until I feel like picking it back up
Apparently this one takes a lot of creative liberties, more so than I was expecting. For instance, Hamilton and Eliza really did have kids right away, not after 3 years of marriage and struggling.

If the blood in this room were any bluer, we could have used it to dye the uniforms of the Continental soldiers!"
If you remember my review of ALEX AND ELIZA from last year, then you'll remember that I didn't like a few things that happened. Nothing like that happened in this book, and I absolutely loved it!
Eliza is still living at home for the first part of the book because the Revolution was still ha ...more
It was interesting to see Alex and Eliza as newlyweds navigating their new life together. This is less about the romance and more about their day to day lives as a married couple.
I very seldom read historical fiction about real people, but I think the author did a good job with Hamilton. He was quite the visionary. The author’s version of Eliza seemed to be a little too independent for the time period, but I still liked her as a character.
I didn’t know that the Hamiltons only lived a few doors ...more
