Reviews Hamilton and Peggy!

  • Megan
    A fun read for historical buffs, fans of Hamilton, and anyone who loves a collection of terrific characters. Peggy is smart and brave--a kick-butt heroine in the style of Jo March or Lizzie Bennett. The cast of characters is rounded out by the people you would expect--Eliza and Angelica Schuyler, Hamilton, George Washington, Lafayette. But there are also hilarious cameos from characters largely forgotten by history. The splashes of romance will t...

    I was pretty psyched about starting this book. I'm still in the "all things" Hamilton mindset and reading this in ARC form was just so fun. Peggy Schuyler needs a story of her own, and this one sucked me in at page one. This story is some well researched historical fiction centering in and around the Revolutionary War. I enjoyed reading about both the details of everyday life in America at that time but also the details of war and how living ...

    In "Hamilton and Peggy!: A Revolutionary Friendship," L.M. Elliott illuminates the spaces that other stories of the Hamilton cohort leave dark. It is a lively, extremely well-researched, impassioned portrayal of a young woman who lovers of all things Hamilton and plucky heroines ahead of their time will find rewarding. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Lovers of the Revolutionary War will gobble it up!While this novel is perfect for existing Hamilton fans...

    I don't even know where to start - this book was everything I wanted! As a Musical Theatre nut and a Hamilton fan, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book and I'M SO GLAD I DID. L.M. Elliott's novel is filled with beautiful scenic description that was so crystal clear, I could basically see my breath as if I were there in the cold winter opening with Peggy and the entire Schuyler crew! The story of this intelligent, spunky, strong-willed you...

    What a great story! I haven't been on the Hamilton bandwagon, so my recall of him is limited to what I just read in my daughter's AP History text, which was all about politics and nothing about his personal life. It was fun to see him come to life through this story. I used to live in NJ, and with a history buff mother, I have been to Jockey Hollow and Ford's Mansion in Morristown, so I loved reading about the history took place there.The bond be...

    I received this through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This novel discusses Peggy Schuyler's role during the American Revolution and the events surrounding the Hamilton play. It attempts to show her saucy side and ability to be a strong character in her own right. It presents her feelings about Alexander Hamilton and the romantic relationships she had during the time. I found this novel to be dry. I felt that there was less plot and ...
  • Becky
    During the Revolutionary War, Peggy Schuyler tries to break free from her older sister's shadows and find her own way. I will admit I read this book because I am a huge "Hamilton" fan which may have been one of the reasons I found this so very disappointing. The story moves very slowly with the narrative promised on the book jacket does not beginning for over 100 pages. The characters are never truly developed relying on what the reader knows fro...

    It is now 4:25 am and I just finished this amazing novel. This is my first historical fiction ever, and honestly, I'll be catching up on L.M. Elliot books because I loved every single part of Peggy's journey. She is witty, she is fierce and courageous and everything I love for in a main character. Although I can't really say whether it's accurate in its depiction of all of the characters and historical events, I am led to believe the author did h...

    *Actually 2.5 stars*This was okay. It was entertaining in parts, but overall felt like it was trying to cash in on the phenomenon that is Hamilton, but with a "different" take.
