Publisher's Summary

Diana Gabaldon's fans will be delighted to find Jamie and Claire as spirited and endearing as ever in this fourth installment of this magnificent saga. Romance, history, and time travel blend once again as the couple builds a new life together in the wilderness of pre-Revolutionary America.

Twice Claire has used an ancient stone circle to travel back to the 18th century. The first time she found love with a Scottish warrior but had to return to the 1940s to save their unborn child. The second time, 20 years later, she reunited with her lost love but had to leave behind the daughter that he would never see. Now Brianna, from her 1960s vantage point, has found a disturbing obituary and will risk everything in an attempt to change history.

Davina Porter's narrative talent adds a special vibrance and resonance to Gabaldon's complex, colorful characters.

©1997 Diana Gabaldon; (P)1999 Recorded Books

What the Critics Say

"Gabaldon's range is impressive, whether she's evoking the rawness of colonial America, the cozy clutter of a modern Scottish parsonage, the lusts of the body or the yearnings of the spirit. Her legion of fans will love diving into this ocean of romance." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Another wonderful book"

    This book was a rich story that continued to deepen the complexity of the characters I loved this one and the depth of emotions. I do not want to spoil it so instead will say if after the first book you felt books two and three dragged a little...this totally made up for it!

    "an amazing historical fictional love story"

    Loved, loved, loved this series! Sad to see it come to an end.. could have had a little less explicit sex scenes, for my comfort level, but still couldn't stop listening!

    "The first letdown in the series"

    Although the book is important in this series, the storyline was typical romance drivel. With a few exceptions, you can see the plot a mile ahead of this slow plod through a typical soap opera progression. I almost expected someone to get amnesia at some point.

    Story
    "Blah"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, not really. I LOVED Outlander....but Drums of Autumn has lost me. It was long and boring and introduced too many new characters that I couldn't care less about.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    More romance. I don't need unnecessary gratuitous sex scenes....but in a book this long, one sex scene isn't enough, especially if its one between characters that aren't Jamie and Claire.


    Any additional comments?

    This will probably be my last Outlander book. I may go back and listen to the first one again though, for the third time.

    "Another precious jewel in her crown!"

    I'm a fan of Diana Gabaldon and she never disappoints. The entire Outlander series is amazing and my go-to for sure.
