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.

Listening to this one while driving on a road trip is the only way I made it through the book. It was so long and drawn out (and slow in comparison to the others) that I put it down a lot. Where the others barely left my hand/ears.
Davina does a great job as always!
This book while slow is so necessary when it comes to the big picture of Outlander. Press on, so much more story awaits at the other end. :)
Once this Outlander series begins, you can't step away. Davina Porter is brilliant as a narrator of so many voices and brogues. Amazing. Definitely 5 stars!
Worth every single minute . Rich with honor, family, history and a rare true love.
The continuity in the story line from one book to the next is fascinating. Characters are well developed and narration is fantastic. I like the blend of history and fiction with suspense and intrigue
Davina Porter's rich accent and unique narration for each character brings them to life. I can hear her voice in my mind even when I'm reading and not listening to the audible portion.
I would definitely take Claire out to dinner to find out how this whole series plays out!
Finally here this version with the great voice of Davina Porter!! I am so happy. Her voice makes the whole book come to live, especcially when you have listened to the first four outlander books. Now just waiting for 'breath of snow and ashes' with Davina Porter! Please Audible....
I echo the above sentiment. Having listened to the previous four books it is a joyl to hear Davina Porter's wonderful voice again. Please please record book 6.
"Jamie & Claire Saga continues"
This is book 5 of the time travel Outlander series of adventures of Claire Randall and highlander Jamie Fraser. I have read all seven books and listened to them on disc and via Audible as well. Can't wait for book eight!
Davina Porter is a fantastic voice actress and makes these books so enjoyable. They are great for a story to listen to without needing to think about them; I listen in the car
I have paid for this audio book and it has not downloaded really annoying.
Even this feedback is annoying .why can't I just submit
this is an excellent book in the outlander series. I would recommend it to anyone
"just keeps getting better. "
live these books. the author is excellent at detail, character development and story writing. Couldn't stop listening.
"as always a good listen"
loved every minute of this book. wonderful and amazing! such a great series. looking forward to next one
"Twists, great plots and a bit of history"
The narrator is very good, sometimes I find myself having the same experience like reading the book for myself, the scenes folding out right before my eyes, perfectly and vividly described, and delivered.
i haven't quite finished yet, but the happenings at the wedding are great.
I have listened to the previous Gabaldon books and she is good as ever,she plays well with her voice.
The plot thickens
I started listening to these books after watching the outlander series. The first book was good, although i do not think i would have carried on with the series had i not watched it on TV. Now on Book 5 i have given up. I persevered through the last few books as i wanted to know what happened to Jamie and Clare. I now am not interested. The story lines are getting more and more far fetched and there seems to be parts of the story that are introduced and are left hanging with no explanation. She may be picking them back up later but it doesn't seem so. Very badly written and although i know the author is american but the English that is used in parts in terrible. Will not waste anymore credits on this.
