Summary (From the publisher):

Trinity brilliantly re-creates Irelandís struggle for independence - a saga of glories and defeats, triumphs and tragedies - as lived by a young Catholic rebel, Conor Larkin, and the beautiful and valiant Protestant girl who defied her heritage to join herself to him and his cause. Moving from Conorís tiny Donegal village, with its close, loving family ties, its warm friendships, its fierce loyalties, to the Bogside slums of Londonderry, to the teeming port city of Belfast, Uris paints a searing portrait of a beleaguered people divided by religion and wealth. On the one side, the impoverished Catholic peasantry; on the other, the Protestant aristocracy - railroad tycoon Sir Frederick Weed and his headstrong daughter, Caroline, and the arrogant Hubble clan, landed gentry wielding tyrranical power over life and death.

  • "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...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." Pete Hamill, The New York Times Book Review
