"1781. Albany, New York. As the war for American independence rages on, Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler begin their new life as a married couple. Still, Alex is as determined as ever to prove his mettle and secure his legacy... even if that means leaving his beloved Eliza behind to join the front lines at the Battle of Yorktown. But when the war unexpectedly arrives on Eliza's doorstep, she must fight for a better future-- for their fledgling country and for her marriage. Yet even after the Revolution comes to its historic close, Alex and Eliza's happily-ever-after is threatened. Eliza struggles to build a home in the hustle and bustle of New York City just as Alex's burgeoning law practice brings him up against his greatest rival-- the ambitious young lawyer Aaron Burr. And with Alex's star on the rise, Eliza can't help but feel neglected by a husband who seems to have time for everyone but her. Torn apart by new trials and temptations, can Alex and Eliza's epic love survive life in the big city?"--Page [4] of cover.

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.
