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.

"Compulsively readable." (Publishers Weekly)
"A winning combination of vivid imagination and good common sense." (Kirkus)
"Diana Gabaldon is a born storyteller." (Arizona Republic)
took me a little longer to finish with a busy life style , but totally worth the purchase and time to listen to. it gives you more of a background of Claire and Jamie's relationship.
totally worth the purchase and awaiting to listen to the next book of the series.
Yes, but only if they had read Outlander first. This was a great continuation of the Outlander story.
Chapter 48 in it's entirety.
Yes, but that would have been more than I think anyone could do and still enjoy it as they should.
I loved this book as much if not more than the first and I am still blown away by the talents of Davina Porter as a narrator.
If you love to read this book has everything you read for. Humor, drama, action, love, sex, and something you don't see much anymore; honor. I find myself thinking of these characters during the day and can't wait to get back to it
The first half of the book was fairly boring, if it hadn't been read to me then I wouldn't have finished it. Way too much plot contributed to politics and gossip. The last part of the book was much better though, and made me want to listen to the next one in the series.
Great performance in my opinion, really good contrast of character voices and accents.
A wonderful compliment to the first book, that feels like a worthy conclusion to the story arc created by the first. Usually very thoughtful and in no rush, with great care in character development, but at times very intense. Some great twists too. The reader is fantastic, her accents always adding to the story (except maybe the American one).
Great writing and a wonderful performance! Definitely recommend for anyone that enjoys historical fiction. The details make the story come alive and give a sense of connection to Claire and her family.
Audible listener for MANY years. I love mysteries and spy novels, biographies, historical fiction, and many other things in between.
I've been told by friends who have read the whole series that this book was one of the slower ones. With Divina Porter reading, I found myself immersed in the book and was happy to listen to every line. I'm not sure I have ever heard a better reader, she really makes everything come alive. These books are not to be rushed through, but savored for the beautiful writing, imagery, and story. I can't wait to start the next book, even though I know it is 45 hours long – yikes! I'm hooked!
