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, twenty 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.

    With more twists and turns than the Mississippi, the family comes together with a couple of additions. If, like me, you've never given birth, you'll get a vicarious journey for the process! A good read and you'll love Brianna.

  • Laura Taylor

    This is the best narrator I have ever heard !!! She is amazing through the whole book and changing her voice to fit each character I can't even begin to say enough about her nor the author... xoxo

  • Evelyn Pickard

    I can't believe I am still hooked after four books! This book was as good as the three previous. I try to tell myself to move onto another author but don't think I can until the series is finished! The whole audiobooks experience is amazing - made me actually look forward to my three hours a day in the traffic!

  • Wendee Seaton

    I love this series and this book is no exception. Diana Gabaldon always keeps you on the edge of your seat and she has some incredible twists in these books. Davina Porter is by far the best narrator that I've listened to. You forgot only one person is reading this as she brings all of the characters to life. I highly recommend!

  • Laurie Adams

    Am loving this story so much! The narrator has a great voice and makes you feel you are right there with them!
