THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: What is your favorite book? (or, one of your favorites!)

I have several favorite books because that is just how my book brain works. One of my all time favorites that will always be a favorite, however is Trinity by Leon Uris. I first read this book when I was 13 and given some of the content it might have been a little soon but it has stayed with me since.

From the acclaimed author who enthralled the world with Exodus, Battle Cry, QB VII, Topaz, and other beloved classics of twentieth-century fiction comes a sweeping and powerful epic adventure that captures the “terrible beauty” of Ireland during its long and bloody struggle for freedom. It is the electrifying story of an idealistic young Catholic rebel and the valiant and beautiful Protestant girl who defied her heritage to join his cause. It is a tale of love and danger, of triumph at an unthinkable cost — a magnificent portrait of a people divided by class, faith, and prejudice — an unforgettable saga of the fires that devastated a majestic land . . . and the unquenchable flames that burn in the human heart.

It has been many years since my last read but I still remember it. I may have to read it again this year if I can get a new copy.
