From the Publisher:

With more than eight million copies sold, Trinity stands as one of the blockbuster novels of our time. Now, with Redemption, master storyteller Leon Uris -- whose ten novels all remain in print -- continues his mighty epic of love and loss, triumph and tragedy in the "terrible beauty" that is Ireland.

As he did so brilliantly in Trinity, Leon Uris continues to explore the saga of the long-frustrated Irish people and the growing momentum of their heroic and defiant journey toward independence. Set against the dramatic backdrop of increased unrest in Ireland, adventures to New Zealand and Egypt and the disaster at Gallipoli, climaxing with the Irish Easter Uprising of 1916, Redemption weaves together unforgettable new characters as well as those the world came to know so well in Trinity: Rory Larkin -- the novel's hero --who is gradually transformed from a "wild colonial boy" and a brash, ruthlessly tempered and independent man into a devoted patriot and a man capable of one great love; his father, Liam Larkin, the middle son of the Larkin family, who was forced to emigrate from Ireland to New Zealand in 1895; and Atty Fitzpatrick, Conor Larkin's last lover and a leading Republican, as well as the continuing story of the Weed-Hubble clan.

Like its predecessor, Redemption is a monumental novel about our most powerful aspiration: freedom. Written by a man whose novels have captivated generations of readers, it is sure to join the ranks of his previous books as a colossal work of literature, a blockbuster bestseller and a classic for all time.

About the Author:

Internationally acclaimed novelist Leon Uris ran away from home at age seventeen, a month after the attack on Pearl Harbor, to join the Marine Corps, and he served at Guadalcanal and Tarawa.
