I think this Author is brilliant. Not fast reading
because his books are filled with accurate historical
background and knowledge. This is like the
sequel to The Trinity. I look forward to reading
both these books because I am convinced that
it will give me in depth and comprehensive understanding
of the Irish Struggle. Just like Exodus gave me much
deeper understanding of Israel. And the Haj gave
me much better understanding of the Arabs in Palestine.
I read several of Leon Uris' Books when I was in high school. Exodus was awesome. Battle Cry was awesome. Mila 18 was awesome. Armageddon was awesome. I am looking forward to reading the rest of Leon Uris' books.

( the stuff of Irish legend ) Redemption neatly fills in small blanks from " Trinity " it neatly fills in little bits that clarify the bigger picture from the previous story, but " Redemption's " real story is about that bloody horror that was Gallipoli. Here the characters gel
and the history between the Hubbles and the Larkins, start to surface and events unfold in an unexpected way.
Redemption is a " follow on " story but on reflection Rory probably realises that he cannot change the history of so many centuries,and Lady Caroline realises that she cannot re live old fantasies through a younger man who's heart truly lies elsewhere however what they can do is strike a " telling " blow for justice, which they do and then their lives move on as must we.
Another powerful story from a master story teller
