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, 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. If you've experienced Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, or Voyager), you already know the length of the book is deceptive. None of them is nearly long enough.

Better than Voyager, when it comes to the phrasing and biases of the characters. It's still uncomfortable to constantly hear 'savage' or 'the chinese' or 'the indian' instead of centering these characters personhood, whether it is accurate or not, but this book feels more human and less stereotypical than the last in a few aspects. The strengthening of Brianna's storyline is encouraging, though Bonnet's entire subplot feels like continual and deeply unforgiving gut-punches for the reader. Doesn't compare to Randall as a bad-guy, but I can't really tell why. Still, it's nice to see the time through the eyes of our characters and the moment where Brianna tells you-know-who off is genuinely a shining beacon smack dab in the middle of the book. The narrator, as always, is exceptional and her accents and singing brings a smile to my face.

Love this book, the history, and the growing family through out. This is my second time through the series. Could do without so much sexual assault. I ff through it. MUCH better than the TV series.

I love all of Diana's, books. I have seen her in person and she signed four of my books. I thanked her for the way she wrote and the wonderful history she winds into her story. One of my favorite parts of this one is Jamie finally gets to meet his beautiful daughter. I never get tired of reading it or listening to this wonderful meeting.

Another wonderful novel by Gabaldon. Difficult to explain 4 stars without giving away part of the storyline but I did not enjoy quite as much as the three previous works in the series.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. Davina Porter who narrates the book has the ability to bring the story and its characters to life. . Highly recommended.

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.

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!

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!
