This is the fourth novel in the bestselling outlander series. How far will a woman travel to find a father, a lover a destiny? Across seas, across time - across the grave itself. It began in Scotland, at an ancient stone circle. Claire Randall was swept through time into the arms of James Fraser whose love for her became legend - a tale of tragic passion that ended with her return to the present to bear his child. Two decades later, Claire travelled back again to reunite with Jamie, this time in frontier America. But Claire had left someone behind in her own time - their daughter Brianna. Now Brianna has made a disturbing discovery that sends her to the stone circle and a terrifying leap into the unknown. In search of her mother and the father she has never met, she risks her own future to try to change history - and to save their lives. But as Brianna plunges into an uncharted wilderness, a heartbreaking encounter may strand her forever in the past - or root her in the place she should be, where her heart and soul belong...

Loved the story. This whole series is fantastic!! Want to watch the series on tv, but don't get the chanel it is on. If it is half as good as the book, which is great, it will be worth watching......^i^

You *NEED* to read this book!
If you love fiction and/or historical fiction, this book is a *must* read! This is actually the 4th in a series by Diana Gabaldon (the 1st in the series is Outlander). I have never been a fan of fiction where the majority of the plot takes place in Europe but this series has me completely hooked and has really expanded my reading interests. I can't even emphasize how much you need to read this series!
Publishers Weekly, 1996-11-18 Gabaldon has few rivals in writing excitingŠand heftyŠhistorical romances. The fourth in a series of linked sagas (Outlander; Dragonfly in Amber; Voyager), her new epic has a delicious premise. Claire Randall, the post-WWII bride of historian Frank Randall, steps through a skew in the Scottish stone circle Craigh na Dun and lands in Revolutionary America and the arms of Highlander Jamie FraserŠputting a new spin on the notion of a two-timing woman. Bold and bawdy, but a believing Catholic, Claire struggles to live a rich and moral lifeŠor, rather, rich and moral livesŠunder these extraordinary circumstances. Claire's adventures in 18th-century Charleston alternate with equally engaging chapters devoted to her 20th-century daughter, Brianna. Raised as Frank Randall's child, Bree discovers that Jamie Fraser is her real sire. She takes off on a harrowing, confrontational quest through time and space with her suitor, Roger Wakefield, in hot pursuit. Gabaldon's range is impressive, whether she's evoking the rawness of colonial America, the cozy clutter of a modern Scottish parsonage, the lusts of the body or the yearnings of the spirit. Her legion of fans will love diving into this ocean of romance. Major ad/promo; Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club featured alternates; author tour. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
