Diana Gabaldon's magnificent historical saga, begun with Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber, continues with this New York Times best seller. 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.
It took me a long time to really get into this book. It took about four months for me to read this book.
This book follows Claire as she leaves her daughter in present time Scotland and goes back in search of Jamie. She finds Jamie and then the journey truly starts. They are hunted because of his side job as a rum runner. His youngest nephew gets kidnapped and now they are in search of him. Can they find him in time to save him? Will they fall back into place as a couple without any trouble? Do they remember each other enough to move forward? Will the truths of the last twenty years rip them apart for good?
I struggled through the beginning but as soon as Claire crossed back through the stones I no longer struggled. It was just really slow starting this book. However, it was important information that we needed to know so it isn’t something that can go away. Again, Diana has written an amazing book. The characters are intense and easy to fall for. I felt like I was in the story and laughed a lot through out this book. Diana has an amazing writing style and l look forward to continuing this amazing series. The narrator continues her amazing telling of this series. She is an amazing choice for a narrator.
I look forward to seeing how they portray this book in the series. I look forward to meeting new characters as the series continues on. If you have not read this series then you should pick it up ASAP. But make sure you have plenty of reading time to help you through.
