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.
A month after the attack on Pearl Harbor, internationally acclaimed novelist Leon Uris, then age 17, ran away to join the Marine Corps. His first novel. Battle Cry, was based on his experiences on Guadalcanal and Tarawa. He is also the author of Exodus, Mila 18, QBVII, Topaz, Armageddon, Trinity, Redemption, and The Angry Hills, among others. All of his novels have been selections of either the Literary Guild or the Book of the Month Club - the majority as main selections—and many are backlist mass-market bestsellers.
John Bedford Lloyd's film credits include Philadelphia, The Abyss, and Crossing Delancy and he has made numerous television appearances on shows such as Law & Order, Spin City and The Equalizer.
