Two decades after the Civil War, first-generation Irish-American Zachary O'Hara, son of a legendary Marine and a force of a man in his own right, finds himself playing a critical role as the very existence of the Marine Corps is being decided. If he can help persuade the Secretary of the Navy that the Marines will be crucial to America's security in years to come -- all the while hefting a heavy, secret weight in his heart -- he'll save the Corps and make his career.But there's an obstacle in his path that this warrior hadn't planned on. Amanda Blanton Kerr, the daughter of a ruthless industrialist, is on a mission of her own; passionate, obstinate, and whip-smart, she's an heiress poised to blaze a trail for all women.

O'Hara's Choice is the story of the inevitable collision of these two handsome, fighting spirits, in which getting their souls' desires could jeopardize everything they -- and their parents before them -- scraped and struggled to achieve.

About the Author:

Internationally acclaimed novelist Leon Uris ran away at age seventeen, a month after the attack on Pearl Harbor, to join the Marine Corps, and he served at Guadacanal and Tarawa. His first novel, Battle Cry, was based on his own experiences in the Marines, which he revisits in O'Hara's Choice. His novels include the bestsellers Redemption, Trinity, Exodus, QBVII, and Topaz, among others. Leon Uris passed away in June 2003.

From AudioFile:

In the post-Civil War era, dedicated second-generation Marine Zachary O'Hara is given the responsibility of preserving the Corps by convincing the Secretary of the Navy of its importance to the future of American defense. Love enters the story when O'Hara's life becomes entwined with that of the independent Amanda Kerr Blanton. And conflict ensues when both O'Hara's superiors and her father object to the relationship. John Bedford Lloyd reads this melodrama with a bold, clear voice that works for both action and romance. The resolution will not be unexpected, but the strong reading will keep listeners involved until the end. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
