Two decades after the Civil War, first-generation Irish-American Zachary O'Hara, son of a legendary Marine and a force of a man in his own right, finds himself playing a critical role as the very existence of the Marine Corps is being decided. If he can help persuade the Secretary of the Navy that the Marines will be crucial to America's security in years to come, all the while hefting a heavy, secret weight in his heart, he'll save the Corps and make his career.

But there's an obstacle in his path that this warrior hadn't planned on. Amanda Blanton Kerr, the daughter of a ruthless industrialist, is on a mission of her own; passionate, obstinate, and whip-smart, she's an heiress poised to blaze a trail for all women.

O'Hara's Choice is the story of the inevitable collision of these two handsome, fighting spirits, in which getting their souls' desires could jeopardize everything they, and their parents before them, scraped and struggled to achieve. Download and start listening now!

    " I hadn't even realized that Leon Uris was still writing when this one came out. It was mildly interesting, but a letdown compared to my memory of earlier novels such as EXODUS and QB VII, which were riveting. The "big" ending and the "big" romance both fell flat with me. "

    " I believe this was one of the last books Uris wrote in his long illustrious career. Having read several of his earlier books, I always found his works to be both informative and historically accurate. O'Hara's Choice was a good story wrapped around a history of The United States Marine Corp. The story is both endearing and entertaining but not of the classic level of "Trinity" or "Battle Cry" but it is a good read especially for lovers of the history of the US and the USMC. "

    " A story about the beginnings of the Marine Corp and the reason for its being. A love story is woven thoughout the book and a young marine must choose between the Corps and a woman. This tale was not the best of Uris and I wonder if his death, some three months before the publishing of this book, left the manuscript in an unfinished state. "

    " I read Leon Uris's "Exodus" and it was amazing, one of my favorite books. So I had pretty high expectations for "O'Hara's Choice". Unfortunately, I was disappointed. It was kind of about Marines. But turned out to be a love story. And it just sucked ass. Will I try more Leon Uris in the future? I don't know. "
