Publisher's Summary

Diana Gabaldon's immensely popular Outlander saga soars to new heights with this seventh novel, which takes listeners on a breathtaking journey to 1777 America.

Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army.

And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

Epic in scope and featuring a colorful cast that includes many legendary figures - including hero-turned-traitor Benedict Arnold and bawdy statesman Benjamin Franklin - An Echo in the Bone is a thrill from start to finish.

    "An Echo in the Bone is excellent..."

    I wondered what would happen when William saw Jamie....and I guess I'll have to continue reading to find out what happens between Claire and John and Jamie....
    Excellent book.

    "Read the WHOLE Series!!! Trust me!!"

    Diana's books are a must read for anyone who loves in depth characters, stimulating conversations, and intelligent plot lines. To follow a family of favorite characters through their lives (and not just a set of small scale situations) is a Joy!! I have read (and listened to) these books multiple times, and plan to do so again. They are favorite friends of mine.

    Davina Porter is an extremely talented actress who speaks for multiple characters without confusing the listeners. I could listen to her forever. I believe she could even make a phone book come to life!

    "Very good but not Excellent"

    Devoted fan, had to be this next book in series. However, there were several times when I got lost by events such as who won the battles, what was happening on the ships that were captured, etc. Ms Gaboldon's skill in delving into details often borders on obsessive minutia that becomes wearisome & plodding.

    near the end, I was especially disappointed in her usage of coincidences. Come on--Diane, you can do better than that!

    That said, I loved her character development, her descriptions of Jamie and Claire's mature & abiding love, their coals of passion, and fierce loyalty.

    As a stand alone book, I would not recommend it. As part of the series, I would. I wish there was more time travel and mysticism included. I have wished for that in every book since the first. And sadly, I still think her first book was her best. II am wrong when I read the next book.

    I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must

    "Least favorite of the series...but still....loved!"

    I didn't love the way this book started. Sometimes there's too much of Lord John Gray. I don't mind him as a minor character but he plays a larger role in this book....one that will make you SCREAM at Mrs. Gabaldon.

    There is just too much of William thrown in all of a sudden. I understand that his character would eventually and should be part of the overall story but we didn't really get to care and then here he is...lots of him. His character is pretty important to Jamie but we only see him as a little bitty boy a few chapters as a juvenile and then all of a sudden it's like major parts of this book are nothing but William. It was almost like she knew she had to cram all of William into one book. I was just totally turned off by the amount of William in most of the book.....and then in true DG style she roped me into caring for him!

    Everything just seemed so rushed. I mean everything that happens 3/4 of the way through just happens so quick without much build up or description. It's like the Cliff's notes instead of Diana's usual writing. I kept thinking..."wait what about this....how did this unfold...how did he/she react" but instead we were just told....the next day is here & everything moves on.

    But it is still integral and still DG writing..if not her best (again it just felt rushed) it is still wonderful.

    Will you want to tear your hair out...yes...cry..yes...get pissed...yes...it is still Outlander!
