Finalist for the 2009 RT Award for Historical Fiction
This seventh novel in author Diana Gabaldon's immensely popular Outlander saga takes listeners on a thrilling journey to 1777 America. Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no
matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But fighting for the eventual winner is no guarantee of safety. And worse still, the possibility of pointing a weapon at his own
son-a young officer in the British army-haunts Jamie's every thought.
“For six episodes, Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander
saga has kept readers enthralled with its time-travel romance about eighteenth-century
warrior Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his twentieth-century wife Claire Randall. In
this latest full-bodied installment, nearly a thousand pages long, this devoted
pair must personally experience the American rebellion, a historical event with
a foreordained conclusion, but their knowledge cannot guarantee their safety or
the safety of those they love. An Echo in
the Bone is a standalone historical romance that meets the high standards
of this series.” —Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review
“All you’ve come to expect from Gabaldon…adventure, history, romance, fantasy.” —Arizona Republic
“Since Outlander readers have become invested in
the lives of Jamie Fraser and his wife, Claire, these are not simply fictional
characters. They have come alive through Gabaldon’s incredible storytelling.
The eagerly awaited seventh volume offers fans a sweeping tale filled with
breathtaking adventure and rich and accurate historical details. But it is the
powerful human relationships that transcend time and space that move Gabaldon’s
work out of the ordinary. This is nothing short of a masterpiece.” —RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
“The seventh installment of Gabaldon’s popular
Outlander series will not disappoint her fans…Readers anticipating a lengthy
visit with Jamie and Claire may be vexed to find that a goodly chunk of the
story is devoted to William; but his adventures include all the thrilling
elements Outlander addicts have come to crave. Relish this book—it might be a
long stretch until the next fix.” —Library Journal
“An Echo in the Bone is a wonderful, adventure-filled, emotion-packed reunion with the Frasers.” —Romance Reviews Today
“Pages fly by and leave readers hungering to know what comes next for a set of engagingly colorful characters who by now feel like old friends.” —BookLunes.com
“Davina Porter’s virtuoso narration clarifies the leaps between the three major story lines…Thanks to Porter’s superb voicings, especially of sharp-witted Claire and brawny Jamie, the listener follows the potentially bewildering episode changes. Porter excels in voicing their son-in-law’s raspy attempts to sing with a throat injury, due to an unsuccessful hanging, and improves a few beleaguered narrative sections with snappy pacing…Delightful.” —Audiofile
