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)

    "Fantastic and griping"

    Diana Gabaldon does it again with a griping story that keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. Time flew as I listened to this book on the run.

    "Take me to rehab!"

    I'm so absolutely hooked on this series!!! I need rehab! And to think that the next two are not available on audible!!! A crime! Drums of Autumn ranks as my favorite next to the first one. I enjoyed the love story of Brianna and Roger and the reactions of Jamie and Claire in dealing with them. At times I wanted to scream to help Roger!!!! Just so well done! And, once again, Diana Gabaldon was superb. I've already started reading Fiery Cross (because rehab is full) and can hear her narration in my head because she made the characters come so alive for me! If you are reading this review, you are already hooked because you've read all the others. Get ready for a great ride...this one rocks!

    "Love this book!"

    I am new to this series and I'm hooked! Though I am bit worried about reading the next two books because they are unabridged. Still...I want to know what happens next so I'm going to take my chances. This book was made me cry, laugh and feel geniune feelings for the charters. I highly recommend this series!

    "Not as good as the others but..."

    I got the feeling this was just a bridge book between the last and the next books. The first several parts are just back ground info, setting you up for what happens in the last part or two. I did find the whole Briana, Roger romance exciting! so that keeps the book pushing forward at least. I didn't think it was as emotionally charged at DiA or Voyager, but still worth the credits to listen. Davina Porter is as always unbelievable! Great humor, great prose, great love scenes, great and believeable characters.

    Used to read classic lit for pleasure of well-written prose. Now, with MS, it's thrillers, courtroom/police dramas, and adventure to escape!

    "I'm Hooked!"

    Writing the same review for all of the books... First, what an incredibly talented author! The time travel, the romance, the harrowing situations, the adventures... what's not to love?! My only regret is that the next books after Drums of Autumn are abridged, and I just won't do abridged. Will have to wait it out, but it will be hard. As long as these books are, I never tired of listening to them, and were always wanting more when they were finished!

    "Loved the book"

    I loved this book. I have listened to and enjoyed the first three booked and thought this book was just as good. I can't wait to drive back and forth to work each day so I can continue with the saga of Jamie and Claire. I am so disappointed that books 5 and 6 are not available unabridged. I am reading them now but it's not the same without Davina Porter's narration. I have already purchased Echo to the Bone but have to wait until I finish reading to listen to it. This is a great series.

    "Jamie and Claire"

    I have read 5 of this series of books and love them. Hearing the audio version is awesome. It just makes the story that much better.
