Love & War by Melissa de la Cruz is the prequel to Alex & Eliza, which is probably the cutest book I’ve read. In the second book of the trilogy, Alex and Eliza are happily married but are not completely settled, as Alex is still gone to war. Eliza feels that she is not part of a marriage, and simply feels lonely without her sisters, her parents, but most importantly her husband.
Alex & Eliza had a simple, romantic plot about two lovers during the American Revolution, and Love & War starts to bring in the hardships of marriage that existed even 200 years ago. What made this book even better, was that the book was based on real people: Colonel Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler. There’s not much to write about how I felt about this book because it was so simple and straight to the point. But overall, I absolutely loved this book and give it a 5/5 star rating. I recommend it to readers ages 13 and up.

Another excellent title! Can't wait to read the third book in this series coming out next year. If you love history, romance and Hamilton this is definitely a must read.

Unity and compromises are what keep Alex and Eliza's new marriage together. Away from the Schuyler family and setting up a new home in the bustling state of New York, Alex and Eliza must deal with the ramifications of war and pull together to start a new chapter. It is only through being willing to look at the world through different eyes that Alex and Eliza are able to succeed beyond their wildest dreams.

de La Cruz is open about historical deviations for the sake of the narrative and does a fine job of going beyond the history books to paint Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler Hamilton as a dynamic power couple with much to learn from each other.

So much better than the first one.
We get to see Alex & Eliza go from living separately during the war, to having their own home and starting a life in New York.
