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.

This one had so many plot twists that some made me qwerk my eye, but I've grown very fond of these characters. I'll miss them when she stops.
It has been many years since I came across a writer such as Ms Gabaldon. Over the months it has taken me to get this far in the story the characters imagination have me waiting with excitement to read/listen the next day! The writer and reader are a match made in readers heaven!! So long as I live I will never forget the moving love story of Jamie and Claire. Thank you Ms Gabaldon and Davina Porter for this amazing adventure.
Awesome books. The narrator brings the characters to life. I love the way she can change from one accent to another and from male to female! Totally know which character is speaking.
Once again the author never ceases to amaze! She is historical fiction at it's best! It's "all in the details" from chapter to chapter, book to book. So much to discover!
Every book is better than the last. Is it sad that I was rooting for rollo ALOT!! Love loved it!!!! Jamie is the man!
Love this series and everything about it...performance, writing, length.
Switching back and forth between Scotland 250 years ago to the mid 1900's we get to know a family of time travelers and their adventures. Love the history covered from an eye witness point of reference, and the endearing multi dimensional characters. One forgets the main characters are fictional as they come alive through the writing and performance. If the characters were real, one would want them as your best friends.
I absolutely love this series and this book is no exception. I am so grateful that Davinia Porter was able to read all the books and look forward to enjoying the next one. Thank you Dianna Gabaldon for imagining and creating such an interesting, informative and entertaining saga. Well worth the hours I have spent in the worlds and with the people you have so vividly described.
