    Hurtled back through time more than two hundred years to 1743 Scotland, Claire Randall finds herself caught in the midst of an unfamiliar world torn apart by violence, pestilence, and revolution and haunted by her growing feelings for a young soldier, James Fraser.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have read the books in this series three times and will read them again I'm sure, all but this one. I am having trouble getting through it to the point that I just want someone to tell me how it ends and stop the pain. Perhaps by itself it might be a good book, but it certainly cannot stand up to the rest of the Outlander series.


    What could Diana Gabaldon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She should have stayed with the formula that worked for the rest of the series.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Davina Porter’s performances?

    absolutely!


    Any additional comments?

    I would not even want to read the "John Grey" spin-off series now because I'm sick of reading about him in this book.

    From mega-selling author Jodi Picoult comes an engrossing tale of medical morality and parental responsibility. Charlotte O'Keefe's daughter is born with osteogenesis imperfecta and will endure endless broken bones. Facing unthinkable medical costs, Charlotte considers a troubling solution. If she goes to court and says she would have terminated the pregnancy had she known of her daughter's condition, she might get enough money for a lifetime of medical expenses.

    Amy Augustine says: "Worth it"
    "not as good as her other books"
