Explores the saga of the Irish people through the Larkin family in an epic that ranges from Ireland to New Zealand, Egypt, and Gallipoli

Blackwell North Amer
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 weaves together unforgettable new characters with those that readers came to know so well in Trinity: Liam Larkin, forced to emigrate from Ireland to New Zealand in 1895, has become a prosperous sheep baron; his oldest son, Rory, a seething "wild colonial boy," lives restlessly with a dark Larkin family secret and is haunted by the legend of his uncle, Conor Larkin, who was killed in an Irish Republican raid; and Atty Fitzpatrick, an aristocrat and Conor's last love turned member of the illegal Brotherhood. Here is a young Winston Churchill, destined to make a profound impact on Ireland, accompanying his father, Lord Randolph Churchill, to Ireland in the Protestant cause, rising to First Lord of the Admiralty and becoming chief architect of the Gallipoli catastrophe. Wealthy, beautiful Anglo industrialist Countess Caroline Weed Hubble, who has never overcome her unrequited love for Conor Larkin, weaves her way like a single thread through the lives of the Larkin family, ultimately using her influence with Churchill in a dangerous gambit.

This is the sequel to "The Trinity."

Everything I've read by Uris is great, but "The Trinity" is my fave. I read it twice -- that's how much I liked it.
