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.

I read, the old fashioned way, one of Leon Uris' books, many years ago. Since then nothing really caught my interest. I was looking for a book that would keep me entertained - I listen to books on my way to and from work. There was just something about the blurb for this book that intrigued me enough to want to give it a try. I am really glad that I did.
A book about the early years of the US Marine Corps would not normally excite me, but the combination of a good story, well written and a satisfying rendition of the story has made me glad that I took this title.
I don't claim that anyone else will like it, but I have enjoyed it immensely. Thank you, Audible, you have rekindled my interest in Leon Uris, I will have to try some more of his books. Just a pity that you don't seem to have any other of his books. Ah well.
It didn't lift me at all. It took me ages to find anything worth caring about in the book. In the end I let it go.
Tom Wood's third book on Victor the Assassin. Totally brilliant books and well presented. Narrator also helps these books.
Not that I can think of and I usually enjoyed Leon Uris when I was younger.
This paticular book is great. It is especially excellent for those that want to know about the "Old Corps". The story does remind me of Web Griffin. Many interconnecting people - well woven. Kept me interested.
Leon Uris is a pure unequivocal writer. Always a good listen with great readers
and will always recommend.
"review of O'Hara Choice"
Didn't like how it ended .O'Hara gave up his life for her and she trashed it.
I've read his other books and enjoyed them but this one was disappointing. It went on and on and on very little character development pretty superfluous in general.
"Try and try again."
The dialog was trite, it was to much like a television screenplay then a novel.
This is the first audiobook from this author; I have read most of this authors' books from Exodus to Chesapeake, He was an inspirational writer: I emphsize the word "was". Compared to Texas this was a disaster.
I have heard better narration from audiobooks by Jim Butcher, Dean Koontz, Terry Pratchett and others. I have library of over two hundred plus in number and this was one of the worst I have listened to.
No, if it were a television mini-series I might watch it.
I have listened to it on three separate occasions and I wish that I had purchased something else from my wish list. I am a retired educator and Anthropologist, reading his earlier books gave me the inspiration to become an Archaeologist: I am glad this was not the first book I had read by Uris, if it had been, I would have become a Stockbroker.
The book was a bit disjointed and superficial (unlike so many other Leon Uris books which I have really enjoyed.) My biggest complaints, however, were with the recording: 1)some sections seemed to be spliced in out of order--making things quite confusing and 2) on several occasions, I could hear someone laughing in the background.
