Definately... an emotionally stable friend....
Roger the first time he saw the baby, jenny with Brianna, Jaime with Breanna, Breanna with John. They were all so good!
I always love when she talks for Jaime.

Besides the original Outlander book, this is the most moving book in the series so far. More than once I found myself near tears. It's so joyous and heartbreaking at the same time. This book was awesome!
I enjoyed the North American setting in this series and seeing Jamie and Claire in the colonies. Brianna's character acted totally stupid a few times, but I tried to forgive her and hope the author doesn't write her into behaving erratically. In all I Loved this story much more than the others. The writing is well crafted. The publisher does not have to add explicit sex scenes to sell the work, which those of us who really love to read appreciate. I gave this an R rating similar to what you would see in the movies.
There is so much detail in this series that you feel like you are right there with the characters. I love to listen to these books, Ms. Porter reads so well, she has the voice accents perfect, she reads, as I am sure Ms. Gabaldon wanted the characters portrayed. I am entranced when I listen to these stories. It is so nice to listen to these stories on my way home from a stressful job. I am transported to a far away place for an hour a day. The historical work is amazing. Thanks to both of these ladies, the first for the story and the second for bringing it alive!
Amid the excitement of the Starz TV series based on Gabaldon's books it's wonderful to step back and listen to her stories again. This time through I wasn't so caught up in the plot but found myself sitting in the corner watching a loving, healthy marriage. Claire is her own woman, and no matter the cost, Jamie would never take that from her.
The previous books were typically characters losing their tempers and being clueless. This one was about misunderstandings, which I usually love, but this one was quite uncomfortable.
