Publisher's Summary

In her now classic novel Outlander, Diana Gabaldon told the story of Claire Randall, an English ex-combat nurse who walks through a stone circle in the Scottish Highlands in 1946, and disappears… into 1743. The story unfolded from there in seven best-selling novels, and CNN has called it "a grand adventure written on a canvas that probes the heart, weighs the soul and measures the human spirit across [centuries]." Now the story continues in Written in My Own Heart's Blood.

It is 1778: France declares war on Great Britain, the British army leaves Philadelphia, and George Washington's troops leave Valley Forge in pursuit. At this moment, Jamie Fraser returns from a presumed watery grave to discover that his best friend has married his wife; his illegitimate son has discovered (to his horror) who his father really is; and his beloved nephew, Ian, wants to marry a Quaker. Meanwhile, Jamie's wife, Claire, and his sister, Jenny, are busy picking up the pieces.

The Frasers can only be thankful that their daughter Brianna and her family are safe in 20th-century Scotland. Or not. In fact, Brianna is searching for her own son, who was kidnapped by a man determined to learn her family's secrets. Her husband, Roger, has ventured into the past in search of the missing boy - never suspecting that the object of his quest has not left the present. Now, with Roger out of the way, the kidnapper can focus on his true target: Brianna herself.

Written in My Own Heart's Blood is the brilliant next chapter in a masterpiece of the imagination unlike any other.

    "I am addicted."

    in the book before this one it ended with Jemmie trapped underground, in the dark, all alone, so I had to listen to this book to get him out of that horrible place. Now this book ends and somehow or another Brianna and her family, who were in Scotland in the time when Jamie's father was still alive, are now showing up in America, the same time as everyone else, how does that happen?

    "You get a plot, you get a plot..."

    William is my least favorite character. Too much time is spent on him and his feelings. so was frustrated by Bri's decision making, inability to physically hold on to her kids, and that she still didn't take the threats to her family as seriously as she should. There were at least 6 plots going on at once but I hope the next book wraps everything up nicely. Still a great read and Davina Porter is wonderful as usual.

    "Wonderfully woven tale set in a historical context"

    Ms Gabaldon is a gifted weaver of an adventurous tale of the lives of a community of people held together around two main characters. A tale much richer than any TV series could ever portray. Never a dull moment in 8 volumes. The narrator, Davina Porter, is excellent.

    "Written iin My Own Heart's Blood"

    I enjoyed this book on tape more the second time around. Davina Porter captures the essence of the characters beautifully. Her voice has become like an old friend one longs to hear.

    "an amazing book"

    this was an amazing experience and difficult to turn off the recording. I felt connected with each of the characters and the mix of historical history with fiction made this one of the most entertaining stories I have ever experienced.
