A dramatic saga set against the backdrop of growing unrest in Ireland and a world on the brink of the First World War, Redemption weaves together a cast of unforgettable characters that form the heart and soul of three extraordinary Irish families. They love freedom more than life, and they will fight to the death to win it.

From the magnificence of New Zealand's green mountains, to the bloody beaches and cliffs of Gallipoli, to the streets of Dublin and the shipyards of Belfast, Redemption follows three Irish patriots on their odysseys of freedom and passion -- in a monumental tale of the men and women who loved, fought, and died for the chance to live free.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The stirring account of the Battle of Gallipoli, as well as tales of betrayal and assassination prior to the Easter uprising, [rival] the best of his earlier work. Few writers who have tackled the Troubles have exhibited the scope or the organizational skills Uris demonstrates here.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Vivid and engrossing…Uris has created some interesting characters…and given them plenty of reasons to love and hate one another.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “A brilliant storyteller…Redemption is without equal this summer when it comes to solidly enjoyable reading.”       

    Irish Voice

  • “As always, Uris deftly manages a cast of hundreds and propels his narrative along at a swift and satisfying pace. Uris and Redemption deserve another long sojourn on the bestseller lists.”

    Chattanooga Times

  • ANew York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex | 2/11/2014

    " Well-written book full of solid truths. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book. The only reason I don't rate it higher is because it is more or less a compilation of a lot of truths that have already been covered in a lot of books. That's not a criticism of the book; it's just an explanation as to why I'm not giving it a ton of stars. But the bottom line is this book is truth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 12/30/2013

    " this is the book we're reading in my redemption group. the chapters are short and pointed. the questions cut to the heart. add to that a small group in which people are more interested in my heart than in my happiness, and you have a very powerful combination. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chuck | 12/26/2013

    " Wonderfully practical and powerful "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 12/24/2013

    " This was a great book for me. It followed the book of Exodus and the Israelites relationship with God as a model for Jesus' redemption in our lives today. Both challenging and encouraging, I finished with a greater sense of the outlandish love of Jesus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 12/10/2013

    " Wonderful model for a recovery/redemption ministry. Outlines the exodus story as a format for identified sin, understanding the effects in our hearts and minds, and the solution for freedom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 11/7/2013

    " Excellent book that delves deep into issues that people struggle with, not merely dealing with surface symptoms, but confronting the idols these sins reveal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly | 11/6/2013

    " Great book - thought provoking and helpful for anyone who has ever suffered or caused suffering! The book has lots of references, is full of scripture, and includes recommended resources, scripture reading and reflection and discussion questions for each chapter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 1/2/2013

    " This is one of those books that should be read more than once. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexis Hurter | 12/12/2012

    " This is decidedly the best book I have ever read on redemption. Please, go buy yourself a copy. Wilkerson examines the book of Exodus and demonstrates the beauty of God's salvation for His people. Will definitely be rereading this on a regular basis. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Barlow | 11/11/2012

    " This book was surprisingly insightful. I say surprisingly because it wasn't just full of practical insights; it was full of biblical insights. Wilkerson did his homework on the book of Exodus and ANE. Recommended. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chuck Lowery | 5/22/2012

    " The first few chapters of this book are very good. It goes downhill pretty fast in some of the latter material covered however. The prescriptions and methods could easily lead to spiritual, mental, and emotional abuse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gregory Soderberg | 1/29/2012

    " Very helpful book--solid theology and practical wisdom! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joey Elliott | 9/26/2011

    " An invaluable resource. Real stories intertwined with great biblical exposition. Shows that no one is immune to the affects of sin and suffering, and everyone is offered redemption through Christ. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carl | 7/16/2011

    " Using the Exodus as a framework for the redemptive plan of God to save His people this one takes a long hard look at the devastation sin brings. Also the healing, forgiveness and mercy that is God's plan of redemption. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Borges | 5/10/2011

    " Not a very strong follow up to Trinity. I am left wanting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cara | 3/29/2011

    " Somewhat rehashes Trinity, but still a solid read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie-anne | 3/16/2011

    " The first 300 pages can be frustrating at times because they tend to revisit events that took place in Trinity. There are a few inconsistencies, and it can be tedious.
    Once Uris moves on to "new events", it is then just as fascinating as Trinity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 2/25/2011

    " Many technical flaws with this book, which reads like a first draft throughout, but a good story never the less.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 1/12/2011

    " This is an outstanding tale of the IRA. A look inside. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 8/28/2010

    " The beginning had a little too much back and forth from the past to the present but settled down and became a must finish. Over all a very good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chuck | 6/24/2010

    " This is a sequel to Trinity. Much of the book simply re-tells the Trinity story.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brent | 6/14/2010

    " Starts out slow but quickly picks up. The Irish separation, WW I, New Zealand, Irish and English clashing , the poor , and the aristocracy all intermingled in a fine yuarn by the author fo Exodus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Inge | 1/28/2010

    " the continuation of Trinity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Owen | 12/28/2009

    " Following Liam in this tragically Irish story as he carves out a life in New Zealand. Uris tackles the British handling of WWI (not good) and the death of that generation of boys from all over the colonies. Typical Uris. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwen | 10/21/2009

    " Historical fiction - I love Leon Uris! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kennedy | 7/8/2009

    " I loved Exodus and Trinity by Leon Uris; Redemption is also very good for a summer read if you like historical fiction. It builds substantially on Trinity, but also repeats a bit more of the first book's plot than necessary, so you can skim a good chunk for the first couple hundred pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evan | 6/26/2009

    " Must be read after Trinity "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 12/11/2008

    " Good sequil to Trinity. Trinity was much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molly | 11/19/2008

    " The sequal to Trinity. I liked it, although not as much as Trinity. Still, if you can't get enough of the Larkin family, it's a good way to hang on to them! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vince | 11/14/2008

    " I was surprised to find this one. I had fallen out of love with Leon Uris - felt he was becoming a bit formulaic. I'm glad I gave this a try. It continues the story in one of my first favourite books one generation later (Trinity). "
