Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now the sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel. Still longing to know the fate of her beloved warrior, she recounts the story of her stay with him in the intrigue-ridden court of Charles Stuart and their attempt to avert the doomed Highlands uprising at Culloden. As her story unfolds, it reveals implications more far-reaching than even Claire could have guessed.

Narrator Davina Porter's gift for expression captures the history and flavor of a harsh place and time, and gives it the polish of a warm and engaging love story.

I'm OUT

Any additional comments?

OK so looks like this book is going to be more of the same. Diana's bringing to light all the torturous sex scenes from the past and a horrible character is back from the grave. I can't take another man on man rape scene or even relive the past stuff. I'm Out!

Not sure....

Never expected that Davina Porter can't do an American accent. Her Briana voice is just excruciating. This is my least favorite in the series - basically set in France bonny prince Charlie blah blah.

One Bad Accent

Fabulous story by Gabaldon. Loved Davina Porter in the first book. Bri's American accent doesn't work and pulls the listener out of the story each time it is used.

Not as captivating but worth it.

It was, as pointed out in the title, harder to get through this book than the last. Maybe because of how I thought I knew how this would end and because I didn't want that. But finishing this book leaves me satisfied with how the story ends and wanting more. If you're already in the series go ahead and commit.
