Summary

Leon Uris’s beloved Irish classic

From the acclaimed author who enthralled the world with Exodus, Battle Cry, QB VII, Topaz, and other beloved classics of twentieth-century fiction comes a sweeping and powerful epic adventure that captures the "terrible beauty" of Ireland during its long and bloody struggle for freedom. It is the electrifying story of an idealistic young Catholic rebel and the valiant and beautiful Protestant girl who defied her heritage to join his cause. It is a tale of love and danger, of triumph at an unthinkable cost - a magnificent portrait of a people divided by class, faith, and prejudice - an unforgettable saga of the fires that devastated a majestic land...and the unquenchable flames that burn in the human heart.

Critic reviews

"Leon Uris uses history as the raw material for legend in his powerful novel Trinity, a tale packed with romance and adventure." (Philadelphia Sunday Bulletin)

"The story has a kind of relentless power, based on the real tragedy of Ireland, and Uris’s achievement is that he has neither cheapened nor trivialized that tragedy." (New York Times Book Review)

"An honest Irish story, emotional, full of...tales of Irish heroes and fools, of God, fear and superstition, of love and hatred, poverty and greed." (San Diego Union-Tribune)

Just amazing!

One of the most outstanding stories to be told and listened to. The tragedy of the Irish, from both sides, explained through the eyes of fictitious individuals, families and countries. Leon Uris is a master storyteller, basing his intricate explanation of historical events on both fact and fiction. You come away understanding more
about why each side did as they did, thought as they thought and were prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice for their beliefs. Outstanding!

Fantastic!

this was a brilliant story, well-read, I could imagine everything that happened, possibly it helped that I live in Derry, the story took place around Derry and just a few miles across the Border in the Irish Republic, and also Belfast among other places. this was my first audible book, what a choice I made.
