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.

    "Not the Best...But Don't Stop."

    This is so far my least favorite book in the series, It's still worth listening to, but it's the lesser of a series of great books. I slogged through it at some points. Overall still worth listening to, and important in the overall narrative. Just don't give up after this one. Because Voyager will blow your mind.

    "Quick Review so I can get on to to #3!"

    I love this series. I can't possibly imagine where (or should I say when) Diana can take us next, but I cannot wait.

    The mood, the language, the passion can completely devoure you and drop you back into history.

    "Fantastic"

    I've been reading this series for over 20 years. I re-read it often. Having it on audio ads a great dimension! I love Davina Porter and enjoy the escape into my favorite series while I am driving or exercising.

    "Intriguing story but s little confusing"

    Though the author has a good sense of story and can certainly draw the reader in, at times there are simply too many characters to deal with in one scene which creates a problem known as headhopping. Thus, this makes it difficult to keep up with who is speaking and who is thinking. Also, some author intrusion invades the otherwise descriptive and somewhat poetic narrative. I do love this series however and plan to keep reading despite the graphic scenes which I wish would tone down. The story is just as good without this.
