Description

Jill and Leon Uris came to Ireland looking for answers. Why was Ireland bled by one internal war after another? How can one country contain such greatness and grief? What they discovered was more than the Ireland of peat fires and pubs, of fabled Irish wit and the haunts of the banshees. What they found was a people—trapped in mutual mistrust, but with a courage and kindness that brought them through centuries of bitter occupation and civil dissension, in a land as complexly beautiful as the people themselves. This then is the Urises’ “love song” to the Irish and to Ireland.
