Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Too slow"
    Would you try another book from Diana Gabaldon and/or Davina Porter?

    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.

    "Incredible imagery"

    Loved the writing. Porter is an amazing storyteller. This book is part of a great series but also stands on its own.

    "Just when you think you can stop listening. She throws something new in!!"

    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.
