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 Claire, Jamie's 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, Claire and Jenny, Jamie's sister, are busy picking up the pieces.
The Frasers can
only be thankful that their daughter Brianna and her family are safe in
twentieth-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.@goodreads
I finally finished them all until she puts out the next book, which I need right now.
were a couple deaths that meant something to me. One it was a normal
mourning but the other was so horrible it broke my heart. Don't worry,
I'm not going to tell anyone.
took so long for Claire and Jamie to get back to each other I was going
to scream. And then Claire has to explain everything that happened with
Lord Grey and it was so sad. I felt sorry for them both.
Jamie ends up in another battle but luckily he doesn't have to fight William for reasons.
are more babies born =) The kids are growing up and it's been a joy to
read about it through out this journey. Although, some of them growing
up and having sex were to be skipped over. Just no!
some things happening with Bree, Roger and the kids in the real world
time. Little Mandy is so much bigger and talking =) But something
happens with the kids that ends up taking Roger away and leaving Bree to
fend for herself and the kids.
I loved that pretty much the whole group were together. Ian has someone and Rollo likes them =)
I have to give some space for ole Clarence the mule. He was a mule to
be reckoned with! He would bite you if he didn't like you. He bit one
man clear to the bone, but that man was not a good man and he had stolen
Clarence from the gang. I loved how Germain, Fergus and Claire took up
for Clarence and got him back. Clarence was happy too =)
you know with these books, there are a lot of things going on because
the books are so big. There is too much information to give in a review
and most of it was just normal stuff.
Then they finally get back
to where they belong and something happens that makes me cry with
happiness because I do believe it's what I think it is =)
I can't wait for that next book =)
