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.

    "Second book also a success."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but only if they had read Outlander first. This was a great continuation of the Outlander story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Chapter 48 in it's entirety.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but that would have been more than I think anyone could do and still enjoy it as they should.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Read it!"

    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

    Story
    "Too lengthy at the start"

    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.

    "Leisurious Intensity"

    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).

    "just can't get enough of the Outlander series"

    Davina Porter brings every character to life with her storytelling. Second in the series, it's every bit as good as the first.

    "Don't Be in a Hurry"

    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!
