Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army.
And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.
Epic in scope and featuring a colorful cast that includes many legendary figures - including hero-turned-traitor Benedict Arnold and bawdy statesman Benjamin Franklin - An Echo in the Bone is a thrill from start to finish.

I think the narrator is one of the best out there. Continued story doesn't disappoint. Highly recommend this eBook. Enjoy
I am a literary fiction buff. A great read makes me happy. I love photography and Canon equipment. I write one or two sentence reviews.
l loved listening to Davina Porter read Diana Gabalden's epic story. Jamie and Claire and their family are mesmerizing. Storytelling at its most captivating.
With the narration by Davina Porter, i felt as if i could actually see the characters and feel the emotion of the story.
The return of Jamie after Claire and Lord John believed him to be dead. Also loved the fact that Ian found love.. I love the John Gray and William characters.
She actually makes you feel as if you are watching instead of just listening. She makes the characters come alive.
The entire story was moving and beautifully written and narrated. I cannot wait to read the next installment.. Did not want the story to end!!
Thank you to the author for hours of enjoyment... I loved the story and characters you created. This is one story that will stay with me...
Another fantastic story. After so many books, it should be difficult for these characters to surprise me, but they do not disappoint!
Entotal- character development, historical relevancy, medicinal tutelage, Scottish mysticism, genealogical drama and intrigue - this is a story I never want to end...will begin reading last book in this series within the hour. All the while thinking "when it's finished, what the $£+% am I going to read now."
I've listened to it about a gazillion times already and will likely again.
The narrator is wonderful and you can always tell who is speaking before she tells you.
Here's the correct order for the series. It should be noted that the author often starts her books in a way that makes you feel like you may have the order wrong and missed a book. You didn't. Keep calm and read on. It will be sorted soon.
2. Dragonfly in amber
4. Drums of autumn
5. The fiery cross
6. A breath of snow and ashes
7. An echo in the bone
8. Written in my own hearts blood
Amazing writing! She keeps me eternally hooked! What will I ever do when this series is over? I love Diana Gabaldon and I love Divina Porter!
