Summary

The author of the Sunday Times best-selling Outlander series returns with a brand-new novel in the epic tale.

The past may seem the safest place to be...but it is the most dangerous time to be alive....

Jamie Fraser and Claire Randall were torn apart by the Jacobite Rising in 1743, and it took them 20 years to find each other again. Now the American Revolution threatens to do the same.

It is 1779, and Claire and Jamie are at last reunited with their daughter, Brianna, her husband, Roger, and their children on Fraser's Ridge. Having the family together is a dream the Frasers had thought impossible.

Yet even in the North Carolina backcountry, the effects of war are being felt. Tensions in the Colonies are great, and local feelings run hot enough to boil Hell's tea-kettle. Jamie knows loyalties among his tenants are split and it won't be long until the war is on his doorstep.

Brianna and Roger have their own worry: that the dangers that provoked their escape from the 20th century might catch up to them. Sometimes they question whether risking the perils of the 1700s - among them disease, starvation and an impending war - was indeed the safer choice for their family.

Not so far away, young William Ransom is still coming to terms with the discovery of his true father's identity - and thus his own - and Lord John Grey has reconciliations to make and dangers to meet...on his son's behalf and his own.

Meanwhile, the Revolutionary War creeps ever closer to Fraser's Ridge. And with the family finally together, Jamie and Claire have more at stake than ever before.

Ja-mar? Who ? Oh I see!

So Germain is now pronounced as Ja-mar. Plus his sweet little French accent has disappeared.
That is disappointing. This is a slow go book and I do mean slow! Sadly this book did not grip me like the others.
On a plus their is not all the sex like the others but flip side it seems to be replaced with over swearing in places. Seems F***ing is the choice. Was that word really used in those times. ?
I am a huge outlander fan but this one just does not hot the mark. For me anyway 😞

This long awaited book does not disappoint. The story is gripping and as usual Davina Porter is exceptional.

Does not disappoint

Although this bought together some of the strings from the previous books in the series, quite a lot is still not answered. Hopefully to be resolved in the next book.
A lot of the characters have continued to develop. The battle scenes are well written and very tense.
A really good read that ends on another cliff hanger! Very enjoyable.

Fabulous amazing. Just wonderful

As always. I’m left wanting more. What a wonderful catch-up. This has been a slightly different book to the others. But as always phenomenal read. Will get a nights sleep and start again.
