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.

    "Exceptional reading"

    A sequel to match the original in intrigue, twists and hooks that leave you needing to hear book three. The reader is exceptionally good; one of the main reasons (along with the quality of writing) that had me going back. Downloading the third volume now!

    Love the story, the romance, the adventure, the history and the narration. It's a little long, but who ever wants a good book to end?

    "Not as great as the first book"

    I adore book one. I was so excited to read this book, but their time in France was very boring. In my opinion this book started getting somewhere about 3/4 of the way through the book. There are pieces of the story you need to know to follow along but it drug out way too long. I felt like I deserved a medal for hanging in that long. But, I love the characters. I cannot wait to see what happens next in book 3. For those who haven't read it yet, hang in there, it's worth it…

    "Another excellent book"

    Dianna's imagination and Davina's performance bring the story and characters to life as if you've traveled through time yourself.
