Diana Gabaldon's magnificent historical saga, begun with Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber, continues with this New York Times bestseller. Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind. It has been 20 years since she and Jamie were forced to separate. Can she risk everything, maybe even her life, on a gamble that their love has withstood the long, rigorous test of time? Diana Gabaldon's powerful, witty, and heroic characters lend themselves well to the rich, melodic narration accorded them by Davina Porter. Under her spell, listeners find themselves transported back through time to exciting faraway places alive with people they would enjoy knowing.

    I loved the first two books in this series, but in this book the author’s depictions several characters were offensive and racist. Her portrait of a Chinese man is nearly as bad as Mickey Rooney’s “Japanese” character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and (semi-spoiler alert) all it takes is a hot bath for Claire to go from being horrified by the conditions of slavery to basically being ok with it. I’m embarrassed to have recommended this series to friends in the past, and really disappointed with the turn it’s taken.

    Enjoyed this third book of the series. The length might deter; however, it flows easily and holds my interest throughout. The narration is great

  • Onna M

    This book has made me laugh and cry and still help my interest. The length of the book didn’t matter because it kept you captivated... what a great book. You feel like you are right there with them....


    I absolutely LOVE the Outlander absolute favorite..but I have say. the narration of this particular book was was as if listening to a grandmother...The voice was sharp...the emotion was OFF...the pronunciation of many words was off...not happy...finding it hard to keep listening

    Love the Outlander series

  • Kellyn B

    My favorite in the whole series, it builds up tension so well. This is my second time listening to it after having listened to all eight books and I still love it just as much. The tension delivers and you can truly feel the echoes of grief throughout this story and the ripples of consequence over this twenty long years. Davina Porter's consistent quality only adds to the dimension of all these books and there is a true chemistry between her voice acting and Diana Gabaldon's writing.

    Enthralling. An exciting book from the moment it starts. Hated having to stop the recording to sleep! Now for the next book... Great narration by Davina Porter, too. Thank you.

    I love this series by Diana Gabaldon. The reader has the perfect voice and inflections to take you through the stones. You'll know what I mean when you listen to the series. I love! I can listen while we drive and while I'm painting.

    Never a dull moment in this series. The greatest way to enjoy the book while getting business done. Davina Porter has done a great job bringing the charachters to life :)

    One of the best series of historical fiction that I've come across. Narration helps to visualize the characters and their individual personalities. Best if read in sequence. Helps to keep the timeline straight.
