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.

"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)
Bookworm. I prefer historical fiction and some fantasy.
I do and have recommended this to friends and family. One of the most absorbing stories ever. And for once an amazing narrator that truly does the characters justice.
In some ways. I have read the books so i know the story but hearing it is even better because it makes me feel like I'm there.
Its historical fiction so maybe The Patriot. Has a personal conection to history.
She is easy to listen to and is good changing from one character to another seamlessley.
Where are we now?
Yes I would, if you have gone through the first two books. You will be ready to dive in the third.
The exploits at sea carry the most of the story. Mr. Willoughby is a very interesting character. It would be good to see him resurface
The question that carries through the story. Who's bones are they? did Claire hold early in the book. Ian Murray will always bring a smile !!!
The "Jack the Ripper" style murders in the book weren't necessary. I will say it again....I know this is written by a woman for woman. Yet the story all together is great listening, but OMG we know Jamie is a massive incredible hunk of Scottish Highlander Man Beef, you've made that point. Thank you Audible for placing the 30 second forward button on the app.
once again my journey into the lives of the Fraser clan was remarkable! I don't know that I could ever listen to this story narrated by anyone but Davina. I became part of the story and found myself once again interacting with the characters on all emotional levels. Diana's genius for storytelling is unmatched. What made this volume particular special for me was hearing the name of one of my direct ancestors mentioned in the book when Jamie and Claire were traveling through SC and stopped at a farm of the Pinckneys! that really made the series special for me! What are the odds of that happening??? I'm getting ready to start Book 5, and I know it will be wonderful. Whatever happens, Je suis prete.
I will probably listen to the entire Outlander series again one day.
The continuity in the story line from one book to the next is fascinating. Characters are well developed and narration is fantastic. I like the blend of history and fiction with suspense and intrigue
Davina Porter's rich accent and unique narration for each character brings them to life. I can hear her voice in my mind even when I'm reading and not listening to the audible portion.
I continue to be amazed at the twist and turns that this continuing story and the characters take.
I love how every story line gets tied up. I have found in these stories that every thing means something and every character has a purpose.
She continues to amaze me with the way she handles the voices of all of the characters. I get so lost in the story because she never pulls me out of it with a false note. I wish she would read all of the books I want to listen to on Audible to me.
Yes, I wanted to, but that was just not realistic with a book so large.
