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.

    Story
    "Complex"

    While overall excellent, some threads in the story are tricky and difficult to follow, in my opinion. For example, the names and ties between the French characters, and the variety of military personnel and battles. If I was reading it in print, it would have been easier. I often wish Audible offered both the e-print and audio versions as part of the same purchase or for a nominal increase in price, so you could toggle back and forth between formats while maintaining your place. For example, if I want to "read" while sitting in a crowded waiting room and I don't have earphones on me, I'm out of luck. Regardless, An Echo in the Bone does NOT disappoint!

    "Never underestimate a narrator's impact!"

    What a wonderful partnership. Davina Porter's narration adds to what is an incredible series. I have read the Outlander books before, but the experience of this audio performance is beyond measure.

    "amazing!"

    kept me on the edge of my seat and eagerly listening the whole drive to and from work each day. Not an easy task considering I work 10 hrs overnight shifts. Not once did I get bored or start to fall asleep because it was so captivating, I love all of the characters and literally cried when Jamie took Ian home to his parents.
