Diana Gabaldon's powerful, witty, and heroic characters lend themselves well to the rich, melodic narration accorded them by Davina Porter. Under her spell, listeners find themselves transported back through time to exciting, faraway places alive with people they would enjoy knowing.

"Triumphant....Her use of historical detail and truly adult love story confirm Gabaldon as a superior writer." (Publishers Weekly)
This book was a better story than the 2nd book and moved faster. Some twists and turns and revelations gives this book staying power. Very detailed as usual, but entertaining.
I'm so addicted to audiobooks I won't even brush my teeth without listening to one. Silence is just wasted time when I could be listening.
I can't imagine listening to anyone but Davina Porter for Diana's books. She knows these characters inside and out.
These books are so entertaining and lovely- can't believe after hours ans hours of the same characters that I still care about them but I do. This series is wonderful delicious head candy.
I enjoyed it immensely. I think it was more poetry in motion than prose so beautiful were the lines and structure of the thing. I may be a bit late in appreciating this series but it was surely worth the wait...lol
As an avid reader of science fiction and history this superbly written novel combines it all to satisfy over and over again. With superb character development and carefully researched facts the story delights while the performance is impeccably done in accurate voices that reflect the characters of the novel. Davinia Porter is superb with all she reads.
This is the best novel I've read in many years with such evocative language that the reading is unforgettable. As a middle aged woman I identified with Claire Beauchamp but found all of the characters richly developed and fascinating.
