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.

    "Disappointed"

    The storyline was on par with other novels in the series. I loved this. The brutality of the sex scenes poor me off. I understand that rape is brutal and as such the description fit. I just don't want to read about it, and couldn't bring myself to support the book.

    "Addicting!"

    I loved this book. in the first couple of chapters I had to adjust the fact that the setting was not continuing in the Highlands, but it had to progress the way it did. And it continues the story moving artfully towards the events that end in Culloden. My favorite scene would result in a spoiler so I will not give that, but let's just that say it's at the end of the book. It brought me to tears and I won't reveal whether they were tears of joy or tears of sadness... you have a lot of good listening ahead of you so get to it! I'm on to Voyager!

    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.

    "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.

    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!

    Engaging and vivid story. Unfortunately let down by a background noise of chatter or echo, noticeable when listening on phone but less so if listening in car.

    "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.
