All For One Reread Campaign: A Love Story (Downloadable Bookmarks!)
Hi everyone! I’m back today with Week One of the All For One Reread Campaign with Penguin! Leading up to the last installment of the Alex & Eliza series, a series of bloggers are spending some time rereading the books. Each week, I’ll be highlighting one of the Schuyler sisters by featuring her quotes from the book of the week in the form of… downloadable bookmarks! Without further ado, let’s start the series off with my favorite Peggy Schuyler quotes from Alex & Eliza: A Love Story!
1777. Albany, New York.
As battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, servants flutter about preparing for one of New York society's biggest events: the Schuylers' grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of their fledgling country's founding families, and even prouder still of their three daughters--Angelica, with her razor-sharp wit; Peggy, with her dazzling looks; and Eliza, whose beauty and charm rival those of both her sisters, though she'd rather be aiding the colonists' cause than dressing up for some silly ball.
Still, Eliza can barely contain her excitement when she hears of the arrival of one Alexander Hamilton, a mysterious, rakish young colonel and General George Washington's right-hand man. Though Alex has arrived as the bearer of bad news for the Schuylers, he can't believe his luck--as an orphan, and a bastard one at that--to be in such esteemed company. And when Alex and Eliza meet that fateful night, so begins an epic love story that would forever change the course of American history.
In the pages of Alex and Eliza, #1 New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz brings to life the romance of young Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler.
Peggy Schuyler is the youngest of the three iconic Schuyler sisters. A hopeless romantic who cares for her family more than anything in the world, she is a steadfast young woman who sticks to her principles. I’ve picked out some of my favorite quotes below!
