This continues where Outlander leaves off, with a separate intro from the 1960s. Claire is “back” and has a grown-up daughter, Brianna. Frank has passed away. Claire brings Brianna to Scotland, intending to tell her about Claire's having travelled back to 18th century Scotland. Claire also finds someone, Roger, whom she needs to fill in on something. She tells them her story, continuing from where Outlander left off, with Claire and Jaime heading to France.

I really liked this one. I liked the story with Brianna and Roger, as well as Claire and Jamie's continuing story. I would actually say I liked this better than Outlander, but that is most likely because I listened to the audio for Outlander, but read this one, instead. The books are so long, it's easy to lose focus with the audios, so reading in print or ebook seems to be the way to go for this series for me. ( )

This is a re-read for me, but that tells you how much I enjoy the series. The biggest downfall of this book is everything that takes place in France. You can literally skip that entire section and have no trouble with the rest of the book and the rest of the series - it is dull and unnecessary. All parts before and after France are quite good tho.

She keeps the story moving. Intense even when you know what is going to happen. How will Claire and Jamie get back together? ( )

I enjoyed this second book even more than the first one, I think. Perhaps I enjoyed the story content more this time, or maybe I am just now oriented to this fictional world and its cast of characters...

I will continue reading this series. I've just begun the third installment. ( )

I must say that I'm obsessed with Outlander for YEARS! I can't let it go! I love the way it mixes science, love and history with time-travelling! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385335970, Paperback)

With her now-classic novel Outlander, Diana Gabaldon introduced two unforgettable characters — Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser—delighting readers with a story of adventure and love that spanned two centuries. Now Gabaldon returns to that extraordinary time and place in this vivid, powerful follow-up to Outlander....

For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland’s majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones ... about a love that transcends the boundaries of time ... and about James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his....

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire’s spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart ... in a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising ... and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves....
