A worldwide sensation with more than 12 million copies in print, Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series has produced #1 best-selling novels and earned a fiercely devoted fan base. Another spellbinding entry in the series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century, time-traveling wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and the rift between Britain and its American colonies has put a frightening word into the minds of all concerned: revolution. In the backwoods of North Carolina, violence has already reared its ugly head, as cabins have been burned to the ground. To preserve the colony for King George III, the governor pleads with Jamie to bring the people together and restore peace. But Jamie has the privilege, although some might call it a burden, of knowing that war cannot be avoided. Claire has told him that the colonies will unite and rebel, and the result will be independence, with all British loyalists either dead or exiled. And there is an additional problem. Claire has discovered a newspaper clipping from 1776 that tells of Jamie’s death. With its epic scope, historical details, and sweeping romance, A Breath of Snow and Ashes is everything Gabaldon’s fans love and more.

"[A]n enthralling experience." (Booklist)
I love the author, the book and the way Davina changes her voice for each character!!!! I wouldn't be able to listen to the rest of the books if Davina wasn't reading them to me!
I will and I have
The Imortal Intruments series
All books made me laugh, a couple got a tear or two out of me
Patiently waiting for the series on tv to come back on and look for any other books of this series I might have missed. Not sure if I want to listen to the lord john series yet.
I would listen to all the books again.. Davania Porter makes listening to this series a pleasure. I have been told, I am spoiled.. that this is not the case is such other series.. I'm glad I'm spoiled..
There are so many to each book. The last chapters I had tears running down my cheeks as I listen while commuting to work..
No , but I will .. she is amazing.
Claire, she is such a powerful women..
I wish I had been listening to Audible sooner, but better late than never.. I"m truly glad a friend showed me the way.. happy listener... enjoy
The best of the novels so far – bravo! The performance was excellent and very much added to the story. The author is incredibly talented.
Yesyesyes!! Finally the last book ofthe voyager series with Davina Porters beautiful voice.
Thank you Audible! Its been worthwhile waiting.
It's been a long wait for audible uk to release this. Having listened to and loved the first five of the outlander series I did not want to listen to this in an abridged version with another reader. Davina Porter is the voice of the Frasers. Now I can complete the series, I'm very happy, thank you.
Loved it and really think the narrator is the best there is. Absolutely fantastic from start to finish.
This is the way history should be taught, the story line is strong and made me feel a part of the family. I couldn't find enough time to listen so I went without sleep to do so. What a story ... Wonderful!!
"At last! Book 6 narrated by Davina Porter"
I've been eagerly waiting for the full series of outlander books to become available because Davina Porter's narration is simply superb! Ms Porter's skill in reproducing the various accents in particular is inspired and really gives the individual characters lives of their own. Such a pleasure to listen to, and a series I return to again and again. Thank you Davina! I just love this book.
"A breath of Snow and Ashes"
This book held me in its spell from start to finnish. Diana Gabaldon's ability to tell a story to hold the readers attention from cover to cover is really amazing .
"Keep on listening"
Before the Revolution
Claire is still My favorit charater. I like reading about her treating patients and her love for Jamie
The way she uses the different accents to bring the characters into life.
When they Cut Roger off from the tree when he was hanged.
