Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
A dramatic saga set against the backdrop of growing unrest in Ireland and a world on the brink of the First World War, Redemption weaves together a cast of unforgettable characters that form the heart and soul of three extraordinary Irish families. They love freedom more than life, and they will fight to the death to win it.
From the magnificence of New Zealand's green mountains, to the bloody beaches and cliffs of Gallipoli, to the streets of Dublin and the shipyards of Belfast, Redemption follows three Irish patriots on their odysseys of freedom and passion -- in a monumental tale of the men and women who loved, fought, and died for the chance to live free.
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.
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. His first novel, Battle Cry, was based on his own experiences in the Marines, which he revisited in his final novel, O'Hara's Choice. His other novels include the bestsellers Redemption, Trinity, Exodus, QB VII, and Topaz, among others. Leon Uris passed away in June 2003.
