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)

    "Keep 'em coming, Diana!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Drums of Autumn to be better than the print version?

    I love the audio version. I am able to listen and finish a book in a lot less time. Sitting and reading a tangible book will always bring a peace to me, however, I am addicted to these books and the audible version allows me to listen on the drive to/from work, at work, during exercise, cleaning, ect. I am able to finish the book a lot faster, being that I am unable to sit and read the print copy as often or as long due to time restraints. So, yes, I would consider the audio edition better than the print.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is a difficult question. I love all of the characters! I suppose Brianna Frazier would be my favorite character right now. She has both Claire and Jamie's characteristics, so I feel like I am choosing three favorite characters in one.


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

    Her performance is wonderful. She brings voice to the characters. And I love the accents! I could not perform a Scott's accent as well as Davina.


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

    This is the fourth book so I am dedicated. I need to know what happens to the characters. I am invested. There are many instances in the book that bring laughter or anxiety. I am rarely without reaction.


    Any additional comments?

    I am so excited to begin the next book. I feel like I am a part of Jamie and Claire's family. An outsider, but an outsider looking in, carefully observing the Frazier's. I am invested and most definitely addicted to the Outlander series.
