"Epic fiction ... Excellent on the roots of the Troubles, and with great characters." Peter Taylor, Guardian "Leon Uris is a storyteller, in a direct line from those men who sat around fires in the days before history and made the tribe more human." New York Times Book Review "A saga of Catholic and Protestant families set against the backdrop of historical events ... A portrait of a country divided by class, faith and prejudice" Irish Times "Raw, tough, and unvarnished" Kirkus Reviews
From the Publisher
The "terrible beauty" that is Ireland comes alive in this mighty epic that re-creates that Emerald's Isle's fierce struggle for independence. Trinity is a saga of glories and defeats, triumphs and tragedies, lived by a young Catholic rebel and the beautiful and valiant Protestant girl who defied her heritage to join him. Leon Uris has painted a masterful portrait of a beleaguered people divided by religion and wealth--impoverished Catholic peasants pitted against a Protestant aristocracy wielding power over life and death.

As Colin Larkin says,"I'm an Irishman and I've had enough!" The period of time is 1885-1914 and the struggle continued. There is real joy in finding a book so well written and powerful and leaves you wanting more but also needing to delve farther into the subject and learning about history, perhaps understanding what is happening in our present time.
In all, if you like learning about history, and/or you have any type of Irish blood in you, you have to read this book. Learn more about how things were for your Grandparents or Great-Gransparents and so on.
