War will bring them together. Peace will tear them apart. History will make them immortal . . .
Born a bastard and raised an orphan in the stifling heat of the Caribbean, Alexander Hamilton must prove his worth on the bloody battlefields of the American Revolution.
A wealthy child of privilege, Elizabeth Schuyler has never wanted for anything, yet she longs for a life of so much more.
When fate brings them together, a passionate, life-long love affair begins. But to Alexander, burdened by his tragic origins, matters of honour can never be forgotten. As he risks everything for the future of his bold new country, this extraordinary marriage will be tested like no other - and become forever immortalised in hearts and minds.
