The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor: Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan.
Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war. Her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through perilous years ahead - or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes.

Love her writing, but this book is mostly descriptive of life in this period. Very little advancement of the story. I would buy an abridged version if available.
I love the continued adventure of Jamie and Claire and the addition of their family as it grows. I have read this book numerous times and now enjoy listening as some one reads to me.
Can't wait until the next book. Love the medical and herbal research. Great narration and voices
I thought this one dragged a little at times with so much description. But thought Davina Porter did another great job with all the character's voices. Glad Ian came back into the story.
Love the everyday life aspect woven into the depths of some plot lines begun in earlier installments.
