Recommended to Kerri by: Seana
Read in September, 2008 — I own a copy

Seana is always talking about this book and after a couple of years I finally get to read it. Fantastic historical fiction novel about Ireland during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Seana is probably mad that I didn't give it five stars, but that's only because there's a lot of political talk which floated right over my head.

Leon Uris
“There's a curse on me as there's a curse on the Larkin name. The curse comes back, again and again, to taunt me! Ronan! Kilty! Tomas! And now me! What are the Irish among men? Are we lepers? Are we a blight? Will there ever be an end to our tears?”
Leon Uris, Trinity

“Love can't mature in one room. It has to come out of the full sharing of everything: joys, aspirations, downfalls, all of it. That's the only real path to love.”
Leon Uris, Trinity

Leon Uris
“The only time we can attract a crowd is for some pilgrimage up some god-damned holy mountain to chase the snakes and banshees out of the country.”
Leon Uris, Trinity
