Trinity was one of the most widely read, beloved novels of our time. Now the epic drama moves into Ireland's most heroic period from the Easter Rising of 1916, when the long-frustrated Irish people exploded into open defiance, through the Black and Tan era and the civil war in the mid-1920s, Against this dramatic backdrop, Uris weaves together the characters we came to know so well in Trinity: Liam Larkin, the middle brother who was forced to emigrate from Ireland to New Zealand in 1885; Atty Fitzpatrick, Conor's last lover and a leading republican; and Liam's son, Rory Larkin, the novel's centerpiece. Like its predecessor, Redemption is a monumental novel about the most powerful aspiration of man -- freedom.

As begun in the bestseller 'Trinity', Leon Uris continues his mighty epic of love and loss in Ireland’s journey towards independence.
Set against the dramatic backdrop of increased unrest in Ireland and a world about to be pitched headlong into the nightmare of the First World War, 'Redemption' follows the stirring fates of three great families – the Larkins, the Weed-Hubble clan and the Fitzpatricks – whose passions, battles and loves are intimately tied to the history of Ireland herself.
The narrative ranges powerfully from the majestic mountains of New Zealand to the shipyards of Belfast, the deserts of Egypt and the disaster of Gallipoli, climaxing in a dangerously unpredictable Ireland and the Easter Uprising of 1916.
'Redemption' is a magnificent novel from one of the greatest storytellers of our time.
“Uris is a master at weaving historical fact and fiction”
“'Redemption' rivals the best of his earlier work. Few writers who have tackled the Troubles have exhibited the scope or the … skills Uris demonstrates here.”
An internationally acclaimed novelist for over forty years, Leon Uris is the author of ‘Trinity’, ‘Exodus’, ‘Mitla Pass’, ‘Mila 18’, ‘QB VIII’, ‘Battle Cry’, ‘Topaz’, and ‘Armageddon’, among others. He lives in New York.
