Publisher's Summary

Diana Gabaldon's fans will be delighted to find Jamie and Claire as spirited and endearing as ever in this fourth installment of this magnificent saga. Romance, history, and time travel blend once again as the couple builds a new life together in the wilderness of pre-Revolutionary America.

Twice Claire has used an ancient stone circle to travel back to the 18th century. The first time she found love with a Scottish warrior but had to return to the 1940s to save their unborn child. The second time, 20 years later, she reunited with her lost love but had to leave behind the daughter that he would never see. Now Brianna, from her 1960s vantage point, has found a disturbing obituary and will risk everything in an attempt to change history.

Davina Porter's narrative talent adds a special vibrance and resonance to Gabaldon's complex, colorful characters.

What the Critics Say

"Gabaldon's range is impressive, whether she's evoking the rawness of colonial America, the cozy clutter of a modern Scottish parsonage, the lusts of the body or the yearnings of the spirit. Her legion of fans will love diving into this ocean of romance." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "Outlander: the story you hope goes on forever"

    Another great book in the outlander series that has everything you would want in a book, romance, conflict, adventure and plot twists aplenty.

    The only thing I can comment on negatively is that the narrator forget how she did roger and Brianna's voices in the previous books. Now roger sounds exactly like Jamie, when before he didn't have much of an accent and had a different tone altogether. I got over it though. Still an excellent performance. Davina porter does a beautiful job of acting, voices and story telling.

    I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes good long stories, and this book and performance to any existing outlander fans!

    Story
    "Made Me Laugh"
    Would you listen to Drums of Autumn again? Why?

    Yes, because this one had a lot of humor made it feel real.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Drums of Autumn?

    When daughter finds father and she runs out and sees him peeing by a tree. And when poor Rodger could never get a break.


    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    How to really pronounce the unfamiliar words such as how Jamie calls Claire, Sassenach.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    laugh


    Any additional comments?

    My favorite this far.

    Story
    "Lots of shivering and goose flesh."

    The author uses the same words and expressions over and over and over again. It gives an obnoxious sense of deja vu. I want to buy her a thesaurus.

    "In love"

    I truly love this whole series so far. Everything about these books makes me want to read on and on. Beautifully written. The details are so good you can close your eyes and imagine every little thing down to the smallest detail. I could read these books over and over.

    "I love this series"

    Davina Porter does a beautiful job performing this story. It is an excellent read and listen. The characters are people with whom one falls in love with. Each book is incredibly long but for the most part it holds the attention and keeps you coming back. I highly recommend it.
