In Boston, men lie dead in the street and in the backwoods of America, isolated cabins burn in the darkness of the forest. The Colony is in ferment. Jamie Fraser, a passionate leader of men, receives an envoy from the Governor Josiah Martin, asking for help. The Governor needs someone to unite the backcountry, pacify the seething resentments of the settlers, and keep the mountains safe for King and Crown. Jamie Fraser, everyone agrees, is the man for the job. But Jamie knows what is to come. His wife, Claire, has travelled back in time from the twentieth century, and she knows that it's only a matter of a few years before the start of the War of Independence, ending with the exile or death of the men loyal to the King of England. Neither prospect appeals to Jamie. Beyond everything else, though, looms the threat of a tiny clipping from The Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports the destruction of the house on Fraser's Ridge, and the death by fire of James Fraser and all his family. Jamie hopes Claire is wrong, for once, about the future - but only time will tell.Read Less

This is the best series I've ever read! Extremely well written. Historically correct., absolutely perfect in every way! I would suggest you start at the beginning of the series with Outlander.

Gabaldon never disappoints
This, I believe, is the 6th in the Outlander Series. I am one that always tries to save the best for last and had this book for quite some time before I picked it up to read. The reason I chose to read it then? I just didn't want the story to end, and thought this was the last book. Then, I got word a new volume was on its way and I had something to look forward to. The stories of Jamie and Claire Fraser never disappoint; they are chock full of history and interesting information and there's always a new adventure around the bend. When Ms. Gabaldon ends the series, I will pick up the first book and will gladly begin the saga again!!! Thank you, Diana, for all the entertainment you've given me!!

Wonderful as always!
Diana Gabaldon always educates as well as captures your imagination! Romance, history, alchemy, medical practice of the time. Time travel and folklore! Family and community. It is always a wonderful read that takes you out of your time and into another. I am always left wanting more!
