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.

    "Greater Appreciation on Second Reading"

    Originally, I read the books as they were published and thoroughly enjoyed them. This time I decided to read them back to back, and found I enjoyed them even more. I did not think this was possible, but these books are so complex, it is just not possible to get everything the first time through.

    I recommend this exercise to all who love the Outlander series, as you will surely find scenes that you missed or misinterpreted before.

    "Addictive!"

    Could not p it down, as was the case of all the books in the series! I suggest that if you love historical fiction, the series is a must.

    "Captivating and informative!"

    The latest in the Outlander series is at least as good as the others! I easily give it 5 stars.

    "Loved it!"

    I've loved them all, and with this one have grown to love so many more characters. In this one I've started to really see the John Grey character shine. Rachel Hunter though is likely my favorite of the new people on the scene. Well done!

    "Never disappointed!"

    After reading the first 7 books of this series, I wondered how it could all come to an end in book 8. This author never fails to deliver... Although I must add that somehow I picked up a scots accent along the way :)

    Story
    "I am a big Jamie Fraser fan but ...."
    Would you try another book from Diana Gabaldon and/or Davina Porter?

    Maybe.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Diana Gabaldon again?

    Possibly.


    Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I really liked the way that Davina Porter read.


    Do you think Written in My Own Heart's Blood needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I feel deeply in love with Jamie Fraser. I have loved the Outlander series. BUT this book has very little Jamie Fraser in it (not enough to please me anyhow) and it just ends with them running down a hill??? What?? I want more strong, dashing & handsome Jamie story lines and everyone else can go back through the stones ....
