The Space Between: An Outlander Novella

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Diana Gabaldon

Narrated By: Davina Porter

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: May 2014

Duration: 4 hours 14 minutes


#1 New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon returns to her Outlander universe in “The Space Between,” an irresistible novella brimming with adventure, history, and suspense—and available for the first time as a standalone eBook.

Joan MacKimmie is on her way to Paris to take up her vocation as a nun. Yet her decision is less a matter of faith than fear, for Joan is plagued by mysterious voices that speak of the future, and by visions that mark those about to die. The sanctuary of the nunnery promises respite from these unwanted visitations . . . or so she prays. Her chaperone is Michael Murray, a young widower who, though he still mourns the death of his wife, finds himself powerfully drawn to his charge. But when the time-traveling Comte St. Germain learns of Joan’s presence in Paris, and of her link to Claire Fraser—La Dame Blanche—Murray is drawn into a battle whose stakes are not merely the life but the very soul of the Scotswoman who, without even trying, has won his heart.

    I enjoyed listening to this novella. Can't wait to listen to the next one. Major fan of Diana Gabaldon and the Outlander series.

    I liked this short novella. It's nice to revisit characters like Remon, St. Germain, Sister Hildegard and Bouton, Jared, et al. Joan McKimmie and Michael Murray are promising characters -- but after being immersed in listening to the entire Outlander series for the past many months, everything seems so short! Seems like the plot and characters are just beginning to take shape when the whole thing is over. I was intrigued by the St. Germain character here; in Outlander he seemed like a complete villain, but here his character is more nuanced and ambiguous, less evil, more of simply a seeker trying to understand his own nature and the nature of the universe. It would be great to have a story focusing on him and Remon and others like them. This is worth the listen, but it leaves me wanting more. Perhaps that's inevitable in a novella following a work of such magnificent storytelling. The narrator Davina Porter is flawless, excellent, engaging, wonderful. I wish every narrator were of her caliber. I've yet to hear better.
