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)
I absolutely loved it, I couldn't put it down. I cried, I laughed, I was angry, anxious & nervous. this btought out so many emotions in me I was truly amazed! !!
this book was just as eventful as the others! although I could've done without all the flowery or over descriptive sidebars... all the fantastic twists more than made up for it! also ended at good break in the story... I hate cliffhangers
The book and series are excellent. The narration is beyond amazing! I will continue to read and listen to this series.....don't stop writing Diana!
I cannot imagine anyone not loving the rich characters of this series! The 4th installment of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series is arguably one of the best. This novel brings most of the Fraser family together in 18th century colonial America but it's no neat and easy journey, as usual.
I have a love/hate relationship with The Outlander series. I like the characters and am often impressed with Gabaldon's ability to weave details and plot points. But, on the flip side, the absurd coincidental connections drive me crazy, and I often find myself fast-forwarding because I just want to get on with it.
Highly recommend, the writer weaves an intricate engaging landscape, while the narrator has a unique skill of capturing each character and bringing them to life.
This romance truly conquers all.
Both Claire and Jamie are performed with equal excellence.
I caught myself laughing out loud on occasion and deeply moved to tears as tragedy befell the lovers, ripping their lives to shreds. Yet their tenacity and courage gives renewed hope that they will persevere.
It took me a long time to finish this book. I struggle to enjoy Brianna and Roger as people. I have an appreciation for them because they are very different from their parents, but it's nothing in comparison to what we love about Jaime and Claire. I look forward to the upcoming books.
