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.

loved it.... downloading the next one now! good story plot, well read. now onwards to the next
The most boring of this series so far. My interest waned a lot. While some parts got exciting, the majority of the book was not very interesting.
It is about Scottish people coming to America in the 1770. Their lives in the mountains and how they influence each other. Excellent listening. Makes a few references to modern day things obviously not available back then.
Also a love story about 2 people and their family.
narrator is excellent , her command of accents is amazing , The story slows a little but the chsracters are great as always
This story is epic. I can't get enough. Davina Porter's ability to bring each character to life is nothing but amazing. I listen to each new chapter with bittersweet anticipation that it will eventually come to an end.
Only if they plan on continuing with the series.
It just drags on forever. Too many descriptions. Too many random events.
The different voices really help keep track during long conversations.
Eh.. It didn't really end on a cliffhanger.
Reviews promise the next one moves along better, so get through this one and get on to the next.
The richness of her voice and ability to make each character become so real you can almost see them when you close your eyes
I understand how people have been saying it drags. The book gives you AMAZING insight into life in the mountains along with a 20th century doctor and engineering trying to improve it. You get more in depth characterization of Brianna and Rodger and still love every moment with Claire and Jamie. The multiple POVs gives a great window into each of the main character's lives and thoughts.
