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.

    "Extraordinarily Enjoyable"

    Not wanting to ruin the plot, I will just say this: This book was like a journey and a warm companion. It took me on highs and lows and everywhere in between.. Extremely well-written, it's one of those books that makes you sit up a little straighter and desire to live a little more fully. It's a worthy read,.. and something you never quite forget.

    Thank you, Diana Gabaldon

    "The saga that keeps one guessing"

    Loved the reader and this consistency and relationship with chars tar building. The Story is so in depth I can say I learns history , though wars and battles are not my favorite part of the book. Sometime this part seemed to much but it always led towards feelings and mood that would follow. Looking now to get the next in the series.

    "Fans of the Outlander series You need to Listen to these"

    I think I might just listen to the audiobooks than reading the books because I felt like I was watching everything as the narrator was telling me to story. Every scene was so freaking vivid in my mind that it was surreal!

    "Terrific!!! Epic storyline"

    I have read most of this series of books (the big ones) but have never finished, as the newer ones came out years after I had read the last. Now I'm re-reading in preparation to finish the series (or at least to catch up) Ms. porter does an incredible job with catching all the different languages, Gaelic, English, and French and inflicting each character so perfectly it's hard to believe there is only one person reading.

    "Can't put it down"

    No really I'm losing sleep as I must know what happens. After reading the first, I am now half way through this book and still have all the others to catch up on. Davina Porter is an amazing narrator. You honestly believe in all the characters and their different voices; how does she do it? I would never have enjoyed these books if I had read them myself. I couldn't have switched from voice to voice in my head the way it is narrated.
    Oh just one other thing; A plead to reviewers; you are giving too much away and this spoils it for those who haven't yet read or finished each novel.

    Jamie, Davina's character voices are impeccable.

    This lived up to the brilliance of the first book, and I finished it in five days. Plenty of laughs and tears, and a gripping plot.

    "Wonderful!"

    The continuing story of Claire and Jamie.. Fascinating, compelling, intoxicating!... A romp through history... traveling in two centuries, full of wonderful characters, who both engage and repel. Epic battles..heartbreaking, as the narrative speaks of the futility of war. Love portrayed timelessly as truth. Funny, affectionate and unputdownable...thank goodness for audible narration by Davina Porter, (who deserves an award!) that brings vividly to life every character and scene with such dramatic flair. As I said ...Wonderful!

    "more sex than history"

    I love historical novels, but this really is more of a romance novel with a bit of history thrown it as filler. If you are looking for a book with lots of sex scenes set in a 'period' ambiance this is your book, if you are looking for more history than slightly vulgar sex than this one isn't for you.

    As with the first book I was absolutely hooked.
    I enjoyed reading and learning more about the characters.
    The story flowed beautifully and the attention to detail was second to none, the author has clearly done her homework.
    Would recommend readers read the book before seeing the series on tv .
    I am now starting on book three
