Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now the sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel. Still longing to know the fate of her beloved warrior, she recounts the story of her stay with him in the intrigue-ridden court of Charles Stuart and their attempt to avert the doomed Highlands uprising at Culloden. As her story unfolds, it reveals implications more far-reaching than even Claire could have guessed.

Narrator Davina Porter's gift for expression captures the history and flavor of a harsh place and time, and gives it the polish of a warm and engaging love story.

    "Dragonfly"

    I get lost in the Paris scenes because of everyone's title but it's Claire and Jamie. It's a good book I've read it three times.

    "wonderful story with fantastic narration"

    As with the previous book, Outlander, Davina Porter's narration is excellent. I can always tell who is speaking thanks to her various inflections and accents. Diana Gabaldon's writing skills were maturing quite a bit by this second book. The only complaint I have is that poor Murtagh has now been named "Dour Murtagh" in my head because I guess she needed a thesaurus! Sexual content does continue in this volume so be aware in case you like to listen in the presence of others.

    "Good story but too much intrigue"

    After reading the first book I was happy to see in this one that there are chapters from someone other than Claire that are not in first person. This made the book more enjoyable. But as most of the book takes place in France there is a lot of court intrigue and fashion that made the book a little dull for me. It does introduce new characters that will have an inpact later in the series.

    Again Davina Porter does an amazing job at Narration.

    "Complete immersion"

    I was introduced to the story by the tv drama but I had to know more so sought out the books. The performance of this book was wonderful. The talent of her many voices made this even more riveting. There are points where I felt it could move along a bit faster but just about then is when the story took another unexpected twist. I am downloading the next book as soon as I finish this review.
