Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

Winner of the 2001 RT Award for Best Historical Novel

The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor--Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan. Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth--there will, without a doubt, be a war. Her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through perilous years ahead--or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes.

Editorial Reviews

“Gabaldon delivers on what she does best: poignant storylines, empathetic characters, meticulous detail, and searing passion. Savor every carefully chosen word, readers; it may be a long time until the next installment!” Amazon.com, editorial review
“The year is 1771. The American War of Independence is fast approaching. And it seems that Jamie Fraser and his wife, Claire, and their beloved family are fated to be in the thick of things once again.” Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review
“Those readers who have been waiting with impatience for the fifth installment in the incredible Outlander series will be richly rewarded by Diana Gabaldon’s latest literary achievement…Gabaldon’s eloquent prose portrays a rich tapestry of life in Colonial America. She is a storyteller par excellence who can capture her readers and immerse them in a distant land and time where passion is ignited, land is fought over and families reunite. All are told with an accuracy for historic detail, a beauty of language and poetry, and of course the irascible humor which make the Outlander series a bounty for her legions of fans.” RTBookReviews (4½ stars)
“The still unfinished strands of this complex and engrossing tale, coupled with the impending Revolution, give hope to Gabaldon’s fans that the saga is not yet finished. As always, the writing is superb lush, evocative, and sensual, with a wealth of historic detail and a good deal of humor. Highly recommended.” Library Journal
“Davina Porter carries the story with a vibrancy and consistency that keep the listener riveted…Her Scottish and British dialects distinguish the characters so thoroughly as to make them instantly identifiable, even before the speakers are named. Jamie Fraser’s rough but lilting Scots accent contrasts nicely with that of his refined British wife. Their daughter, Briana, carries no American dialect; neither does she suffer from a poor imitation thereof. Even the babies convincingly whine, cajole, and play. Porter’s narrative passages tie these delightful characters together elegantly.” AudioFile
