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.

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)

A good place to stop

There are just too many books in this series, and whilst I loved the first three I'm starting to get a sense of "padding" here. Too many stretches of description and intraspection etc etc..... The characters are also starting to lose it a bit for me, behaving in unpredictable ways that are useful to a new plot's thread, but not necessary in keeping with their character (or so it feels like to me). I have no doubt that the next three books will have good bits too - but looking at reviews on the rest of the series, I think that this is where I shall stop. This book (#4) wraps up many of the loose ends and seems a good place to leave Jamie and Claire before I lose my liking of them.

- Robyn "I get bored quickly so take ages choosing my books. Preferred authors are Sanderson and Abercrombie. Add Pacey as narrator and I'm happy."

Needs a good edit

I enjoyed the first two and even the the third but I lost patience with the same old shtik on this one. It might have been OK if the same stuff had happened much more quickly

- Andy "I like a wide range of books especially when I discover something new and great. I like to mix some classics in with the crime and sci fi ."
