Publisher's Summary

A worldwide sensation with more than 12 million copies in print, Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series has produced #1 best-selling novels and earned a fiercely devoted fan base. Another spellbinding entry in the series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century, time-traveling wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and the rift between Britain and its American colonies has put a frightening word into the minds of all concerned: revolution. In the backwoods of North Carolina, violence has already reared its ugly head, as cabins have been burned to the ground. To preserve the colony for King George III, the governor pleads with Jamie to bring the people together and restore peace. But Jamie has the privilege, although some might call it a burden, of knowing that war cannot be avoided. Claire has told him that the colonies will unite and rebel, and the result will be independence, with all British loyalists either dead or exiled. And there is an additional problem. Claire has discovered a newspaper clipping from 1776 that tells of Jamie’s death. With its epic scope, historical details, and sweeping romance, A Breath of Snow and Ashes is everything Gabaldon’s fans love and more.

    "A Breath of Snow and Ashes is very spellbinder."

    Diana as always, now's how to keep her audience enthralled and hanging
    onto every word with baited breath. I enjoy this book every much and will be reading the next in the series.

    "Well Worth the time!"

    In this 6th installment Diana Gabaldon has not disappointed. There are so many twists and turns that leave you breathless and wondering! I would love to meet these characters. I am totally engrossed in their stories. I can't wait to see how the Starz show will handle all of this material. It will go on for years!

    "Third time listening to the series"

    This series is so rich in characters and vivid descriptions of place and time. I have really enjoyed listening again now that I've watched Outlander on tv.

    "It keeps on going!"

    My friend and I continue to work our way thru the OUTLANDER series, and I have just completed A BREATH OF SNOW AND ASHES! It traveled with me while visiting family in Florida, for the long drive north to NY, and post surgery.... About three months' worth!!! Davina Porter never ceases to amaze me: her incredible mastery of the many dialects, the numerous characters, including male and female adults, children, and the elderly! I especially loved (and hated!) the part of the story where Claire was kidnapped. The descriptions the author offered had me grimacing, groaning, and fighting along with her! Kudos!! I'll need to take a little break now and listen to something else, but I'll be back for the next book in a few weeks!!

    I appreciate a good story that goes on and on... As I drive, clean my house, or lay awake with insomnia this story held my interest for hours and hours! I am looking forward to the next one..,
