Publisher's Summary

Diana Gabaldon's magnificent historical saga, begun with Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber, continues with this New York Times best seller. Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind. It has been 20 years since she and Jamie were forced to separate. Can she risk everything, maybe even her life, on a gamble that their love has withstood the long, rigorous test of time?

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.

    "Couldn't love it any more"

    I'm not sure who I love more - Diana Gabaldon or Davina Porter.

    They are perfectly suited for one another and the product of their collaboration is a treasure.

    Voyager was not as enjoyable as Outlander, but I still enjoyed it immensely.

    I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.

    "A Standout in a Remarkable Series"

    I have enjoyed everything Diana Gabaldon has written, but am most fond of the Outlander series. While this third book in the series isn't my favorite, there is so much to recommend about it. First, it fills in gaps. This is where you learn what happened in the 18th and the 20th century during the years between Culloden and when Jamie and Claire are finally reunited. It also deals with the fact that the lovers are middle aged when they reconnect and yet the passion remains. The characters are fully developed, older and wiser. It also introduces and fleshes out secondary characters that play important parts going forward. And finally, like all of her books, it provides several great jumping off points - those story-lines in her books based on real events and/or real people that encourage you to investigate and learn more about that time, place or person on your own.

    I think some of her very best writing is in the book's beginning, at the end of the battle when Jamie is waiting to die. And in the middle of the book in the scenes where Jamie and Claire are nervously and clumsily reunited. The section written that introduces Mr. Willoughby is priceless. As are the sections dealing with everyone else's reactions to Claire's return.

    The end gets a little confusing and bogged down, but the first 9/10ths of this book more than make up for that.

    "My favorite Gabaldon book"

    This is my favorite book out of this series. You have to read Outlander to understand what is going on but trust me its well worth it. The characters become like friends and you find yourself caring about them and there story while learning a great deal about Scottish history. Outstanding book.

    "Okay I'm totally obsessed..."

    The obsession Diana Gabaldon can create for those who read or listen to her books is insane. I mean I can barely stand not being able to listen or read her books about Jamie and Claire and after Dragonfly it was like torture awaiting that point where everything is righted for us loving fans.

    I've already looked. The next book isn't on the site in it's unabridge form. I recommend starting over with Outlander and continuing all the way back to this title.

    You won't be disappointed by this series... I assure you!

    "7 Stars!! Brilliant!!"

    I now have my husband just as hooked on the saga of Jamie and Claire as I am (except I actually went out and bought the printed books to read because Audible only has the 1st three unabridged books). DO NOT try and make do with the abridged versions because they are awful. If you must wait-they will be worth it. The first 3 are for download here (about 40 hours each). They are long but you are still wanting more. My husband and I listen to a little bit every time we get in the car together (I've already listened to them all).
    Davina Porter brings them all to life-you can tell who is talking without the "he said-she said" at the end of the sentances.

    "FANTASTIC!!"

    I listen to an average of 100 books a year, and the Outlander books are some of my most favorite! I find myself going back and listening (they have to be fantastic for me to want to re-listen) time and again. Davina Porter does a brilliant job with the narration!

    "Romance in a Marriage? *spoilers*"

    When I started reading this series I had no idea that this series would continue from book to book with the same couple. I have to admit that once I finished book one and two I thought that their story was finished. I didn't believe that the author would keep me interested enough in the adventures on a single couple's marriage to continue reading.
    Much to my shock I am forced to admit I was very wrong.

    As a reader of romance novels I am used to each and every story coming to a neat and happy ending at the close of each book. It's romance, right? I want to read about that first meeting, the courtship, their happy ending. Why, in God's name, would I want to read about a marriage. What's romantic about that? The same couple from book to book? Believe me if someone would have told me that's this series is about one couple I wouldn't have picked it up.
    Don't get me wrong. I'm not against, the sacrament of, institution of, contract of, or whatever you wish to call it, marriage. I'm married. Though I am very happy in my marriage from time to time looking at the world from a married woman's point of view. The word romance isn't the first thing that pops into one's mind at the mention of husband. Argument happen, some worse then others, reconciliation, compromises and sacrifices are made. All these things come to mind when I think of marriage not romance. Is there romance in marriage? Yea, sure... But most often it's overlooked. With THAT BIT said I should mention the book and I'll just touch lightly just so I won't spoil too much. *wink*

    I've never read such a beautiful reunion of a couple... Ever! It gave me goose bumps and that doesn't happen with me at all, believe me. Not only that, but with the other side of the coin have I ever read a couple's anger toward each other rise to a point until you think they might not recover.

    Gabaldon liked to put little bombshells in her stories. By bombshell I mean little tidbits of information that are over looked until it's stepped on like a land mind! Blowing the story wide open and letting the character bits fall where they may!

    The series, so far, is rich in character, backdrop, adventure, history, details, details, details and... Oh yes romance too.

    Oh, and FYI did I mention this story is epic? Yea, there are a lot of pages and a lot of details but its organized really well and doesn't leave your head spinning. Her historical facts are so on point that historical fans like me will totally get their history geek on by being steeped in this story. By the end of the book you'll be exhausted.

    It's so worth it...

    "Hurry up! I want them all!"

    I LOVE these books! Davina Porter is AMAZING and brings all the characters to life in this series. I listen to them about once a year and cannot wait to have them ALL on my ipod (right now they are on tapes...ugh!) You will not be disappointed (as long as you get the UNABRIDGED version..you won't want to miss a minute of this story!)

    Hurry up Audible...I already need the next one!

    "A Winner!"

    Diana Gabaldon is simply the best author there is. Her books are emotionally charged and have you wanting more and more. I was thrilled that Audible got the unabridged versions of Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager. Do not EVER get the abridged versions. There is simply too much left out. I can't wait for the unabridged versions of Drums of Autumn, Fiery Cross and A Breath of Snow and Ashes. Give these books a try, you wont be sorry.

    "Excellent Narration"

    Good story in a series of good stories, (although I found some of the love scenes going on a bit and fast-forwarded here and there but thats probably just me ;o) )and I really did enjoy lisening to it in the car. Looking forward to the next in the series. Have to make special mention of the narration - I listen to a LOT of audio books and Davina Porter is exceptionally good, easy on the ear and really captures the characters.

    "A roller-coaster ride"

    Gosh you do get your money's worth out of Diana Gabaldon's books. Over 45 hours of listening - phew! This book is a roller-coaster ride - always something happening. Jamie and Clare don't know what boring is and neither does the reader/listener. Davina Porter does another wonderful job at narrating this story. This being book 3 of the Outlander series, I did find the sex scenes a bit tiresome and wish the author would just set the scene and stop at the bedroom door although often have a chuckle at picturing the narrator sat in a recording booth expressing all this passion. I listen while walking my dog around the local park and really look forward to this hour everyday. Looking forward to book 4. By the way, I am female although my name on the review says Mr.

    "Diana Gabaldon in audiobook format"

    What a boon to have these great books in audiobook format. I have read each of the books in the series and am loving them even more in this format. The book are the best and the narrator just adds to the pleasure.

    I am currently listening to voyager and I can't wait to get into the car so that I can listen to some more.

    These audiobooks are definetly worth buying. There are hours of enjoyment awaiting the 'reader'.

    "One of the best"

    Don't start this book unless you are prepared to want to read the whole series. It is wonderfully read and a real page-turner. Strong characters that you will love. Beware also when you get to book 5 because the one available at audible (as at Aug 09)is abridged and has a different narrator. A bitter disappointment.

    "A wonderful immersion into the past..."
    If you could sum up Voyager in three words, what would they be?

    Addictive, facinating, enjoyable


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the great detail that Diana Gabaldon writes in this fourth instalment of the Outlander series. I feel transported back to a time, of which though much is known about, I will never experience first hand. I enjoyed the different points of view of the main characters. Nothing disappoints in this story and I love the continuing tale Jamie and Claire's love and the development of Briana and Roger.


    Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Davina Porter does a wonderful job with all aspects of the narration, from accents, to singing, to a variety of foreign languages and difficult pronunciations. I greatly appreciate the time and effort that goes into the creation of the performances and I never feel, at any point, in the 55+ hours of narration, that the performance is tired.
