Publisher's Summary

In her now classic novel Outlander, Diana Gabaldon told the story of Claire Randall, an English ex-combat nurse who walks through a stone circle in the Scottish Highlands in 1946, and disappears… into 1743. The story unfolded from there in seven best-selling novels, and CNN has called it "a grand adventure written on a canvas that probes the heart, weighs the soul and measures the human spirit across [centuries]." Now the story continues in Written in My Own Heart's Blood.

It is 1778: France declares war on Great Britain, the British army leaves Philadelphia, and George Washington's troops leave Valley Forge in pursuit. At this moment, Jamie Fraser returns from a presumed watery grave to discover that his best friend has married his wife; his illegitimate son has discovered (to his horror) who his father really is; and his beloved nephew, Ian, wants to marry a Quaker. Meanwhile, Jamie's wife, Claire, and his sister, Jenny, are busy picking up the pieces.

The Frasers can only be thankful that their daughter Brianna and her family are safe in 20th-century Scotland. Or not. In fact, Brianna is searching for her own son, who was kidnapped by a man determined to learn her family's secrets. Her husband, Roger, has ventured into the past in search of the missing boy - never suspecting that the object of his quest has not left the present. Now, with Roger out of the way, the kidnapper can focus on his true target: Brianna herself.

Written in My Own Heart's Blood is the brilliant next chapter in a masterpiece of the imagination unlike any other.

    "Sad it concluded, can't wait for book nine!"

    Narrator is divine. MS Porter is amazing in the different voices she created for the characters. It is like being present while actual converts taking place. And the story...well can't say enough about how well written, surprising plot twists, beautiful detail and characters that draw you in. Wish I had 6 stars. Favorite part... the parts that made me laugh out loud. Won't spoil it for you.

    Story
    "Fabulous as always"

    Just the right balance of adventure, romance, and history. Gabaldon weaves new love and heartbreak into the deep, abiding love and passion that Jamie and Claire have shared for decades. This story takes on age old social and political challenges that continue to plague our society today, but it rarely feels contrived in Gabaldon's crafty story telling prose. She immerses the reader in the sights, smells and sounds of every scene in an artful way that I have not found in another author. Davina Porter brings the cast of characters to life with her amazing range of voices. She is so steady and consistent, never missing a subtle nuisance. She makes me feel like I'm watching a play rather than being read to. I know that the story must end somewhere, but thank goodness this is not it!

    "Another winner in the Outlander series"

    Diana Gabaldon's most recent addition to the series is wonderful. Davina Porter again nails every single character, accent, emotion (although she sometimes stumbles over Bree's American speech, but one barely notices).
