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.

    "Really good"

    This book is crazy long! Worth a credit and so frustratingly intriguing that I want to listen all the time, except I need to live, and I think about it a lot!! I enjoyed the book, didn't even mind the slow pace at times of characters thinking things thru. I will listen to the next one for sure and would recommend the first one to start with especially if you are into time travel and history. Well read and well written

    "Hmmm"

    Loved the first book but this one focused WAY too much on sex. I'm no prude, but enough already.

    "Great story telling."

    Captivating story, but disconcerting each time a "male" voice is spoken by a female who sounds like a drunken witch with a hairball stuck in her throat. It is very distracting. Please find a male narrator for the male voice.

    "Love the books"

    This is a wonderful book to listen to, just as the books are to read. My only draw back is the voice of Jaime, to me it's a horrible impression of what Jaime would sound like, it sounds like someone doing a horrible imitation of a Scottish accent, and trying to do a male voice at the same time.

    "Keeps you on the edge of your seat."

    Great love story! I really enjoy the history and all the twists and turns. I love Davina Porters voice and how she changes accents for the characters. It really enhances the story for me.
