Publisher's Summary

The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor: Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan.

Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war. Her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through perilous years ahead - or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes.

Cut out the swallows

Never had this problem with the other audio books, but I heard so many swallows from the narrator it drove me crazy. Not her fault, the fault of the editors who should have cut that out.

perfect! such a fabulous job with it all!

Davina does such a great job switching between the characters. rather it be a soldier, a drunk, a man, a child, an Irish , or a bostonian, she can capture them all with emotions and enthusiasm that moves the story along and keeps me "turning pages!"

My favorite series to date

I've been an avid reader my entire life and have not enjoyed a story this much as to read it again and again. Each time I do finding some bit that I missed previously. Her knowledge of science keeping me enthralled.

Don't give up, keep going!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

First, I adore the Outlander series and will read every book that Diana Gabaldon writes. That said, this is the worst book in the entire series. The narration is great, just increase the reading speed a bit. Then, dive in, don't give up, and keep going. Nothing all that exciting happens in the book, its just life on the frontier. It's a bridge to the next book, which is far better. Hang in there!
